2004 Tommaso Bussola "Vigneto Alto TB" Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

SKU #1045079

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...a stunning wine of profound dimensions. It reveals surreal detail in its well-delineated ripe dark fruit, licorice, smoke and tar. Though medium in body, this Amarone possesses awesome balance and polish. I found it awfully hard to put my glass down. It is extremely rare to encounter an Amarone that balances depth with clarity to this degree of profoundness. Needless to say, this wine is not to be missed. The Vigneto Alto spent 30 months in 500-liter French oak barrels, 100% new. It is one of the breathtaking Amarones I have ever tasted. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019." (10/08) 93 points Wine Spectator: "This well-structured Amarone displays aromas and flavors of sweet currant, mineral and vanilla. Full-bodied, with fine yet sturdy tannins, coated with lots of sweet fruit. A little off-dry. Takes on a bitter orange peel tinge on the finish. Best after 2009. 300 cases made." (Web only, 2009)

Italy

- 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.
