    The 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is spicy, with hints of sour citrus giving way to cocoa, dusty rose and cloves. This is silky with a noticeable sweetness that is balanced by bright acidity, as ripe red betties and plums wash across the palate. It leaves violet florals, creamy dark chocolate and a touch of spice while finishing long and lightly structured. The 2016 is so drinkable; but at 17% abv and 12.7 grams of residual sugar per liter, it's a high-test Amarone, so enjoy it in moderation.
