TASTING NOTES

"The 1998 Amarone della Valpolicella Vigneto di Monte Lodoletta is a supreme example of this wine, almost overwhelming in its aromatic impact, luxuriously sweet, ripe, jammy, and chocolatey, mouthfilling and powerful in flavor, broad and caressing, solid and sustained from the attack to the lengthy, lingering finish, superbly shaped and balanced, pedal to the floor power and shapely elegance all in one package. The score is probably too conservative, but it can easily be checked over the next 25 years." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #154

"Complex nose, with layers of dried fruit, allspice, minerals and hints of coffee cream, tobacco and leather. Full-bodied, with peppery fruit and mineral on the palate, big, young tannins and a long, long finish. Ultrarich. Re-mortgage for this one. Drink now through 2010. 600 cases made." Wine Spectator
