There is nothing negative to say about this wine. I decanted it for an hour, and the aromatics were phenomenal, with the scent of dark cherries, flowers and spice. The color was light, and as stated above, deceptively medium bodied. The taste was extraordinary, with black cherry and tobacco followed by silky tannins leaving a black licorice taste on the finish, slightly bitter, however, "amaro" does mean bitter in Italian. There is some heat involved, as the alcohol content, at , is quite high. I served the wine with our home made stuffed meatballs in a candied red sauce. It also went well with the dark chocolate pieces we dove into afterwards.
