Tommasi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva De Buris 2011
“The 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva De Bvris lifts from the glass with an eyes-rolling-back-in-your-head bouquet with a captivating mix of cedar shavings, cloves, mint, dried citrus rinds, dried black cherries and tobacco. This is intense and potent, with silky textures giving way to a massive wave of mineral-infused red and black fruits contrasted by a twang of sour citrus. It leaves the palate stained with primary concentration as a bitter tug of cocoa and blackberries under an air of balsamic spice slowly fades. This powerful De Buris should truly come into its own after a few years in the cellar.” -E.G 3/23
