Very crisp and fresh, with some nice depth and texture, something I like to see in the style.
Valpolicella Classico 2011
Bright floral juicy nose, and was pleasant and spicy on the palate.
La Grola 2009
Much darker and tighter, slightly fuller and darker as well – a good wine but hardly unique.
Amarone Classico 2008
Very fresh and had lovely fruit sweetness, supple yet firm tannins and great balance.
La Roya Amarone 2007
A significant step up; very deep and intense (possibly due to the warmer vintage), very prominent on oak at the moment, showing some great signs of complexity but requiring a bit of cellaring to open up some more.
