Nicolis is a benchmark producer of Amarone who has been crafting top-notch wines since 1951. This particular bottling is a bit more modern than its usual releases. Instead of aging exclusively in botte grande (HUGE Barrels), some smaller barriques have been introduced. This gives the wine a more lush and rich impression.

Primary aromas of burnt vanilla, muddled mint, and fig waft over a delightful secondary note of walnut and toasted cardamom. A medium-bodied wine, the tannins have softened luxuriously into the fruit.  A pleasurable pump of Good & Plenty greets the tongue while the finish moves into chocolate and Asian five-spice. A core of minerality keeps the complexity intact.

Drink over the next year or two: This wine is at its peak now. 600 cases produced.
