At first the nose was very close and on the palate the wine was short with a strong port-like flavours. But after a few minutes it started to develop. Aromas of ground coffee, liquorice with some toasted wood on the mid palate. The acidity was not there anymore and the sweetness was coming forward more and more as I was tasting it. The length was quite short.
A wine that had oviously passed its best a while ago, yet showing some old but typical flavours of Amarone after a few minutes of opening.
