92Wine Enthusiast

This opens with aromas of ripe dark berry, underbrush, incense and baking spice. The juicy palate delivers black cherry, chopped mint, tobacco and a hint of clove alongside polished, fine-grained tannins.

91Wine Spectator

A fresh, medium- to full-bodied red, featuring chewy tannins and a finely knit core of cherry puree and dried strawberry fruit. Subtly aromatic, with accents of loamy mineral, sandalwood and eucalyptus chiming in on the finish.


Italy, Veneto, Amarone della Valpolicella

Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG, usually called simply Amarone, was awarded its prestigious DOCG appellation status in 2009. Though lush, high alcohol content red wines have been made in the Veneto since the ancient Greeks settled there, the popularity of Amarone over the last few decades has resulted in international demand for the wine. Amarone is typically made from 45% to 95% Corvina, blended with Rondinella and other indigenous grapes. The blend is essentially the same as for Valpolicella, but Amarone is made from dried grapes, which gives it a rich, viscous quality and an alcohol content between 14% and 20%. Though Amarone is a dry wine, there is a sweet version called Recioto della Valpolicella. The recioto style wines are included in the DOCG, and the word “ripasso” on label usually indicates the sweeter style.
