Brunelli Amarone Classico Riserva “Campo del Titari”
Majestic and exuberant, this superb Amarone Riserva is simply outstanding; a combination of grace and aggressive power. Campo del Titari is a nectar made only in the very best vintages and in limited quantities (3000 bottles), it is a wine for the bold: those who are capable of recognizing the strong emotions that inspired it. Oh, and by the way, a natural 17% alc, so not for the faint-hearted.Red BlendsBig & Robust RedsItaly2013750 ml14%+

Of the 2015 my tasting notes were;
“The colour is deep and seductive, dark and dense like essence of Ribena which indicates it will have a long life.
The nose still has some way to develop despite being decanted (into a magnum claret jug which Mrs H. and I received from Peter Sichel as a wedding present in 1986) some 10 hours before we drank it, but it really does exude parma violet Merlot scents alongside the cigar-box overtone resulting from the 16 months in new oak barrels.
We sipped and slurped our way through the two bottles as testified by our purple stained lips and teeth.
The taste revives my memories of 1984 tasting the 82s and 83s direct from the barrel. I enjoy young fine wine but I really must try and wait another year before tasting again.
It would be a shame to drink it all before it reaches its peak sometime in the next 10-20 years!”
“Deep black colour with purple tints. Powerful and complex bouquet of liquorice, black cherry, blackberry, graphite, cedar, toast… Extremely rich though elegant, its full, silky and coated tannins wrap you in softness. Mineral-toasty nuances on the long finish. A pure expression of its rare origin”.MerlotBig & Robust RedsFrance2016750 ml14%+
