. . . serious Amarone
Not the usual crowd-pleaser Amarone but one crafted in a very dry, table wine style. Dark, dense and too serious for drinking till at least its tenth birthday. For the wine drinking CEO.
MASI 06 Amarone della Valpolicella ‘Mazzone’, Veneto 215764 Vintages $99.95
. . . Spanish super-star
Alion is a ‘modern-style’ (aged in French oak) Tempranillo from Spain’s most Traditional winery, Vega-Sicilia. Lots of warmth and spice along with elegance. No need to wait for this guy.
