Marion, Amarone della Valpolicella 2015

RRP £70

2015 was a hot vintage which made concentrated, full-bodied and highly rated wines. I like this example for its vigorous, well-contained and channelled nature. Upright aroma of bay leaves, black berries and sweet tobacco before a lively attack. Good, generous even sumptuous substance, but with a burly tannic bite. Rich, dark tannins and a touch of liquorice lead to a fresh, assertive finish. Once decanted this slims and becomes more aromatic.
