From the Cellar
Tezza 2006 Amarone delle Valpolicella, Valpantena22 Mar 2023
- Category: Uncorked Tonight
Upon opening ... (375ml bottle) - Cork breaks halfway thru, maybe a little over halfway. Thank goodness for the Durand that helped me get the last piece out.
NOSE: There seems to be some oxidation here with notes of sweet cherry.
TASTE: Good acidity, maraschino cherry and slightly spicy notes.
1 hr later ...
Notes of cough syrup and Halls and NyQuil, but all with that cherry undertone.
Bottom Line ...
It is / was ready to drink, it did not last longer than 2 hours in the glass, where there was plenty of sediment to sip around. Now that I think about it, it did not make the 2 hours because it was delicious.
