Excellent - Smooth and wonderful.

Just bottled and it's already wonderful. Smooth with hints of dark cherry, plum and chocolate. Nice mouth feel. Dry and luscious. This taste so good, just after bottling, I'd be willing share with guests immediately. Can't wait to see how this matures with aging.

Easy to follow instructions. Kit is in the carboy as I write this.

Amarone

Since I have recently just started this kit I only starred it at a 3. This is the second Amarone I have done, and while it is still in the primary, the color is very dark and looks to be coming along nicely.

I cannot give a review of the Amarone, because I will not bottle until Jan. 2.

However I have bottled my Nebbiolo , and San Giovese, and both are delicious.

I always go 50 - 56 days before bottling. Two weeks before, I try a half glass every day until I feel it is suitable to drink. My wife is the taster each week, and if she is not pleased, we leave until she says it is ready.

Your Patience will be Rewarded

Started this in mid-December and it finally went into bottles today (late May). There’s richness to it from the addition of the raisins, but not one hint of cloying sweetness. It already has good mouth feel and a nice balance of oak and acidity, but it will be absolutely stellar after another 10-12 months. You’d probably be pleased if you started drinking this wine after 8 weeks, but time is a key ingredient if you want it to live up to its potential and be exceptional. In other words, go make a few batches of white wine to drink until this is ready.
