92Vinous / IWC

A big, dense wine. This expansive, generous red possesses beautiful layers of dark plums, prunes, leather, coffee beans and grilled herbs with superb density and fine overall balance... an exceptional wine.

91Wine Spectator

Rich aromas of dried cherry, currant, spicy earth and fresh herbs. Full-bodied and very tight, with firm tannins coated by a solid core of fruit and mineral. The finish is chewy.. A very dry, muscular style.


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.
