Look: Opaque ruby red with burnished reflections. Nose: Powerful aromas of cherries preserved in spirit and plums. Palate: Majestic, with tastes of marasca cherries and blueberries. Complex aftertaste with surprising length. Food Pairing: Definitely a "food wine". Good with red meat, game, quails, and gutsy dishes. Excellent with mature cheeses such as parmesan and pecorino.

Wine AdvocateTruly drop-dead gorgeous is the 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Mazzano. I think the 2007 vintage is one of the best expressions of Mazzano ever made. This is a finely elaborate and intriguing vinous creation that shines bright like a piece of classic marble sculpture. There is a subtle gloss and patina to the wine that gives it extra smoothness and silkiness to the touch. Likewise, its aromas of white mineral, spice, blackcurrant and licorice are finely etched and defined. Timeless Mazzano will keep in your cellar for ten years or more.

Wine SpectatorThis Amarone offers more savory notes than sweet fruit, with tightly knit flavors of black olive, dried herb and seared mushroom, accented by hints of ground anise and pepper. Delivers depth and length, showing a hint of date on the lasting, minerally finish. Drink now through 2029. 1,158 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastBlue flower, tilled soil, underbrush, tobacco and dried-cherry aromas waft from the glass of this single-vineyard bottling. The warm palate delivers raisin, prune, graphite, mocha, vanilla and a hint of orange peel alongside bracing tannins. The long finish closes on a mineral note.
