95Vinous / IWC

Masses of crushed cherries, dried florals, cinnamon, clove and stone dust...velvety and elegant with masses of dark red fruits and inner spice complicated by intense minerality and fine tannins that slowly saturate. It leaves lavender, licorice and dark, dark chocolate through the finale.

94James Suckling

A spicy, peppery accent jumps out first, followed by dried dark cherries, blackberries, raisins, dark olives and cedar wood. Really smooth and composed, with a medium to full body that’s coated with melting, chocolatey tannins.

92Wine Spectator

Round and silky, showing chewy tannins that are well-meshed with flavors of pureed black cherry, candied violet, eucalyptus and medicinal herbs, with a subtle thread of sweet smoke. Juicy, with a lingering, spiced finish.

91Wine Enthusiast

...dried black cherries that have been dusted with sweet and savory spices, roasted herbs and turned earth...palate is detailed and elegant, with notes of worn leather, clove, anise, prune and black tea.


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.
