  1. i would too last last week i tasted Barolo 2005 from Domenico Clerico… #8 on the Top 100 of 2010 on WS….
    was a perfect combination between the fine wine and the structure. Amarone for my taste is a lil bit to ” sweet ”…
    And Brunello also has to be at least 15 years vintage because the sangiovese needs a lot of time to show his best features.


  2. I would have to choose Barolo… But after a minimum of 10 years after the vintage, although I was lucky enough to try a Quintarelli Amarone Classico 1998 last year… Absolutely stunning and even though it was 16.5% it was so well balanced!
