Matt’s review:

2018 Ca’ dei Frati Pietro Dal Cero (barrel sample) – Rich deep colour, the nose shows dried dark fruits, cassis, prune, and sweet spices with great intensity. The palate is concentrated with delicious dried fruit and spices. Remarkable freshness on the long and beautifully balanced finish. This barrel sample of fine Amarone shows it’s approachable style while young while its great structure will enable medium to long term cellaring. Enjoy 2024-2040+. 94 points.
