Tonight's Wine is a 2007 Bussola Amarone. This Italian wine is a new one I'm trying tonight. I'm not used to the 16.5% alcohol, as the cabs I generally drink are around 14.5%. There is some heat on this wine, which I like. It actually reminds me a bit of port. It is ruby in color, full/medium body, very fruity, but is unfortunately a bit sweeter than I expected on first sip. However when the tannins and heat kick in I'm happy. I taste a bit of cinnamon and apple candy. Actually really reminds me of apple pucker. I don't claim to be a wine expert, but I love it and drink it almost daily, so I thought I'd start sharing my reviews. Just like music, wine is subjective. #wine #wineoftheday
