Take one look at this dense, black-red wine as it sits in the glass, sniff its dark, alluring, exotic treasure-cave of aromas, taste its explosive carnival of flavours and you might be forgiven for thinking that it's five years younger than it really is. This is a sensational Amarone, full of smouldering fires at dusk, of confit fruits, of African incense spices and of dried citrus peels and zests, mouth-filling and dazzling -- and with years left on its clock. Drink 2019-2030.
