2002 Conte di Bregonzo Amarone della Valpolicella Classico - Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico (4/3/2006)
Bought a double magnum of this to open with some casual wine drinkers. Paid $50 for the 3L. Nice presentation with its wax capsule. Nothing special here though. Not nearly as good as the 2001 vintage of this wine. An Amarone made for early consumption. None of the concentrated fruit and intensity you expect from an Amarone. Red fruit and slightly diluted flavors. Round texture. Light to medium body. 81 points.
