Marion 2018 Amarone delle Valpollicella 750ml
The 2018 Amarone della Valpolicella is smoky and darkly alluring, with masses of crushed stone and savory herbs giving way to dried black cherry. This is an especially lifted and juicy red from Marion. Depths of tart wild berry fruit and spiced citrus tones excited by vibrant acidity. It finishes potent and lightly structured, nearly buzzing with residual tension, as hints of hard red candy and dark, dark chocolate linger for what seems to be a full minute.
