Primo Estate Joseph Moda Amarone 2013 6x75 £180.00 14.5%
96 points James Halliday
"80/20%, partially dried grapes (in Amarone style). A deep crimson colour and stunning depth of velvety flavours ranging through blackcurrant compote, dark chocolate, all spice and soused plum, contemptuously brushing away the alcohol. One of the best from the long line of this wine." James Halliday
1988, Joe Grilli has produced this exotic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot using the amarone method made famous in Italy. Fruit from Joe & Dina Grilli's Clarendon vineyard is hung on racks and air-dried prior to crushing, creating a deep, brooding wine with great depth, balance and concentration of flavour.
A regular in the top wines in the Oz Clarke Wine Guide, our experience of older vintages of this wine confirms that this is a sensational wine which fully reward cellaring for up to 15 years.
