2017 Le Guaite di Neomi (barrel sample) – super expressive, a very modern and approachable style of Amarone – loaded with sweet dried dark fruits, cacao, sweet baking spices, menthol/balsamic softwood notes. Repeat on the palate – absolutely delicious, it’s refreshing, with expressive dried fruits, chocolate, and spice box on the long textured finish. A style that will resonate very well with many North American palates. Tasted June 2022. 94-95 points. Matt Steeves – http://www.quercusvino.ca
