Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Light nose of blueberries, dried figs, raisins, vanilla, sweet raspberries, tobacco, herbs, wood, earth, chocolates, coffee, vegetables, leather and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, dark cherries, blueberries, wood, cloves, vanilla, spices, espresso, vegetables, earth, wet leaves, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with grippy tannins and tangy pomegranates.

This is a young Amarone. Still not fully balanced, but already enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

I would recommend to let it open for a couple of hours to show the complexity and the big tannins.

Needs 5 to 10 years of additional bottle time, to properly mature and tone down on the tannins.

A Blend of 50% Corvina Veronese, 30% Rondinella, 15% Corvinone and 5% Oseleta. Aged for 3 years in Slovenian oak barrels.

15% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Cherry bouquet complex flavors a bit of a bitter after taste

Inte helt mogen kanske? Eller bättre imorgon när den luftat på sig? Kanske korrigerar ratingen senare då.

2011. Scored highly in a large Amarone tasting. Has many classic Amarone flavors (stewed fruit) with some more depth and without the cloying presentation.

Wow! This gem made my taste buds explode and it got better as it finished. Such an amazing deep red color and certain to age magnificently.
