Monica Larner, October 2013

The 2008 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Capitel Monte Olmi exhibits masculine appeal with syrupy tones of dried currant, creme de cassis, resin, tar, pipe tobacco, road pavement, black licorice and dried porcino mushroom. This is a massive wine no matter how you slice it with solid tannins, bright acidity, high alcohol (16%) and huge extraction. It’s built like a tank and will likely last a very long time, slowly gaining in complexity and elegance as it undergoes its cellar evolution. Drink 2015-2028.
