Tasting Notes

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate"The 2002 Amarone Classico BG is simply superb. Endowed with deep layers of black cherries, chocolate and licorice, it reveals a sweet, voluminous texture and outstanding length. While it may not have the stuffing to be particularly age worthy, it is incredibly delicious today. In 2002 the Amarone Classico BG contains the fruit that otherwise would have been used for the Amarone TB and Vigneto Alto. The wine was aged in a combination of new and used Slavonian and French oak barrels. The blend is 65% Corvina and Corvinone, 30% Rondinella and 5% Molinara and miscellaneous other varieties. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2012. Tommaso Bussola's wines have received a good deal of critical acclaim over the last few years, and with good reason. These are remarkable wines of the highest level. The estate produces two lines of wines. In theory the BG wines are more traditional in spirit while the TB wines are meant to be more modern. In reality the main difference comes down to vineyard selection, as the estate's best fruit is reserved for the TB range"
