The 2009 Amarone Villa Arvedi is a good introduction for readers who may be new to Amarone. Medium in body and only moderately sweet, the 2009 possesses lovely balance. Expressive floral and spice notes add lift on the finish. Overall, this is a fairly delicate style of Amarone best suited to near-term drinking.
