~ . . . 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.
