Santi Amarone della Valpolicella Proemio 2005


SKU 30141


An awesome Amarone '05 with a modern profile that is subtle despite the richness deriving from partial drying of the grapes, offering clear, fresh flowery aromas and notes of forest fruit. Already excellent today, it will only improve with bottle-ageing. This is a stunning Amarone. Food Match: Venison, soft cheeses, red meat, game, duck, chocolate.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Amarone della Valpolicella Proemio is made in a richer, more generous style than the regular bottling. It shows an additional layer of voluptuousness to the fruit along with a more extroverted personality. The French oak is very nicely balanced. Hints of chocolate, menthol, licorice and leather linger on the close. This is a terrific effort in a challenging harvest. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.

Wine SpectatorOffers sweet raspberry and light toasty oak on the nose. Full-bodied, with a lovely balance of fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Reserved yet beautiful. Better than previously reviewed. Best from 2011 through 2016. 1,750 cases made.
