Wine tasting note: 1995 Corteforte Amarone

1995 Corteforte Amarone

20th Aug 1998 GBP19 Veneto Table Red

[Tasted blind]
Deep purple/red fading to red at rim.
Ripe black fruit on the nose - intense and clean [Syrah?].
Medium to full bodied with cassis fruit and a trace of wet fur. Even, mouthfilling texture and ripe tannins. Long and dry finish with flavours of peppercorns.
[I guessed at Australian Syrah or Cabernet/Syrah - ouch]
