2006 Trabucchi Amarone della Valpolicella

SKU #1126619 92 points Vinous

 Trabucchi's 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella explodes from the glass. Black cherry, tar, incense, smoke and licorice notes all take shape as this big, broad-shouldered wine shows off its personality. Another year or two in bottle should help the 2006 come together even more fully, but it is likely to remain a fairly powerful, hulking Amarone. Still, there is a lot to look forward to here.  (3/2014)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Dark, thick and syrupy, this savory Amarone delivers notes of Indian spice, Teriyaki, molasses, plum and dark berry fruit. It has a noticeably sweet finish with plump flavors of cherry and strawberry jam.  (12/2011)

Wine Spectator

 Aromatic, featuring candied strawberry, floral and spice accents, this creamy, open-knit, juicy red is herbaceous, with sappy black cherry, date and forest floor notes. Drink now through 2018. (Web-2013)

I recently had dinner at the Trabucchi estate, and while tasting wine is always important, there really isn’t anything like drinking it to get a complete picture. I was so impressed by the Trabucchi wines at the table. They had additional spice and earthiness and depth, not just the palate richness that one expects with Amarone, but real flavor/structure integration. The wines grew and grew as they sat in the decanter. The Trabucchi Amarone has less fruity ripeness and a fresher, more vinous quality, this bears more of a resemblance to Barolo than Amarone.
Drink from 2014 to 2021

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
