Typically, I am not a kind of Amarone lover but it is good to drink from time to time. This Tommasi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2007 seemed to sing harmoniously. It started off with sweet fruits and dried off with complexity of spices. It as well possessed integrated smooth texture and long finish. Approachable now and should be drinking well along with red meat. Salute!!!
