2008 Marion Amarone

"Marion’s 2008 Amarone boasts a serious core of fruit supported by veins of deep, intense minerality. So many Marion Amarones are showy when young, but this isn’t one of them. Readers will have to cellar the 2008 for at least a few years, but the wine’s pedigree is impossible to miss, even today. Layers of sweet, perfumed fruit caress the palate as this deep, satisfying Amarone continues to open up in the glass. Still, today, the 2008 is a bit compact and not fully expressive." [+]
