Rocca Sveva 2006 "Amarone della Valpolichella" Italy (Other Regional Reds), Italy

Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (89)
Price: $60
KWG Score: 90.3
No. Professional Ratings: 3
This Amarone from Rocca Sveva is full bodied and ink red in color. It has an appealing bouquet of jammy ripe dark berries, oak, spices and prunes. It’s a mature wine and that has aged very well. It displays smooth black cherries, plums, cocoa beans, light leather and managed tannins that are slightly dry on the palate. This wine from Italy has nice layers of structure and fine balance. It finishes smooth and dry and nicely coats your mouth. I would pair this Amarone with rosemary seasoned braised lamb shanks. - Joe
