The 2010 ‘Kurni’ is composed of 100% Montelpulciano and reminds me of a wine made in a "Ripasso-like" style, similar to an Amarone, but with its own unique twist. It offers bold and exotic aromas of sweet dark fruits, raisins, black plum reduction, banana crème, smoke, cinnamon, pipe tobacco and grilled herbs, which all come together and burst from the glass. This delivers layers of ripe, dense and concentrated dark fruits, wrapped in round polished tannins while finishing up long and supple leaving behind a rich coating of even more dark fruits and sweet spices. I haven't tasted a Kurni since the 2004 vintage, but from what I can remember, it seems like the style has changed drastically. This wine may not be for everyone’s palate, however that being said I still find the effort to be compelling and would certainly highly recommend it to fans of Amarone.
