Wine Advocate-Parker :
Spice, toasted oak and Spanish cedar open the savory bouquet of the 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Campo Leòn. Once that spice and smoke blows off, the wine offers a solid core of dark cherry and blackberry fruit. The mouthfeel is thickly extracted and syrupy in texture. That evident oak adds to the dryness of the tannins and the slightly bitter flavors you get on the finish. This wine is a little overdone for my tastes, especially in this very hot vintage. It ages in new barrique for three years and the oak imprint is very heavy.
