Deep red-ruby. Wild, musky aromas of blueberry, dried herbs, truffle, underbrush and pepper. Large-scaled, dense and very rich in the mouth, showing more fruit and textural softness in this vintage than Mazzano Amarones usually do. Finishes with outstanding acid-fruit-tannin balance and building dusty tannins, not to mention lingering nuances of flint and licorice. This 2009 is just as massive as Mazzano always is, but offers more grace and sweetness than usual.
