2004 Tommaso Bussola "TB" Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

SKU #1037614 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Bussola’s 2004 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico TB possesses remarkable harmony and poise. At first the wine is rather brooding, but with air it turns more delicate, revealing layers of tar, licorice, smoke, toasted oak and black fruits. The wine offers notable clarity and finessed tannins that frame the fruit from start to finish. Although the new oak needs some bottle age to recede a bit, this is clearly a remarkable example of modern-style Amarone at its finest. Bussola gave this bottling 30 months in 500-liter American oak tonneaux, 100% new. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.  (10/2008)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Shows aromas of sweet currant and raisin, with hints of mineral, flowers and cedar. Full-bodied, with a dense core of sweet fruit and mineral, fine, firm tannins and a long, evolving finish that's slightly sugary. This is full of youthful energy. Should come together in time. Best after 2010.  (2/2009)
