Benazzoli Amarone has an intense, velvety garnet red colour. It fills your nostrils with mellow sensations of cherry preserve, caramelised blackberries and a potpourri of rose petals and dried violets. Balsamic hints of resin and musk, and spicy ones of cloves, cinnamon and star anise complete the bouquet.
At first it is powerful and warming on the palate, but the sensation of high alcohol is immediately counterbalanced by a juicy freshness and nice tanginess which, alongside quite evident tannins, give the taste vigour and energy. Delicious hints of cherries and berries preserved in alcohol make the long finish particularly pleasing.
