While the 2005 vintage didn't wow me, I have also come a long way with my palate for red wine and this one has a little something that I do like.  As I just learned, it is the Molinara grape (5%) which contains the acidity, which is why not all Amarones have them as a component.  The taste is prototypical Amarone, giving subtle hints of raisins and prunes, combined with a little spice that makes it a comfortable experience. 

This is your everyday Amarone.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
