The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Bosan is extraordinary, really. It's a huge wine, and although you get lots of ripe fruit, you also get savory notes of tobacco and spice. It is immense and seamless, showing more elegance than other vintages, with a thin mouthfeel. It seems much younger than it is. This blend of 80% Corvina and 20% Rondinella also provides some lingering sweetness on the close, which is infused with spice, tar and camphor ash, a nice choice for lamb shank ravioli. The wine ages in a combination of large oak Slavonian casks and barrique for almost five years and then about a year in the bottle.
