Pasqua Amarone della Valpolicella 2009
|Appellation||Amarone della Valpolicella|
Wine AdvocateThanks to 20 months of barrique aging, the 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Famiglia Pasqua exhibits a more lasting personality both in terms of intensity and persistency. A good value choice for those who like the bold taste of Amarone but don-t want to break the bank, this well-crafted expression doles out bold tones of black fruit and spice. Of the wines presented in this tasting, the Famiglia Pasqua shows the best qualities for cellar aging. Its fruit, structure and acidity all seem worthy to carry it forward. Drink 2014-2022.
Wine EnthusiastThis forward Amarone reflects the heat of the vintage. It has somewhat evolved aromas of leather and prune, accompanied by rich black fruit flavors and soft acidity. The tannins are starting to fade, so enjoy now and over the next few years.
