Corvina Blend

Rengo

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2014

I have really been getting into Italian wines lately and this was recommended at the wine store. I also spent more than I normally would on a wine which is disappointing. 70% Corvina Veronese, 20% Rondinella and 10% Molinara. It’s a medium bodied wine with a ruby red color. It’s very tannic, a little peppery but with a little bit of chocolate, not much fruit. When I sniff it, it smells very high in alcohol. (15%) it has a very long finish on the tongue. Not so sure about this one. Maybe the 2nd night will be better ☹️ — 8 days ago

Tenuta Santa Maria alla Pieve

Amarone della Valpolicella

A remarkable Italian red wine if there ever was one. Tenuta Santa Maria Amarone, in a word, gives so much of what we yearn in a fine wine. It’s absolutely beautiful with a smooth richness that paired perfectly with a grilled tomahawk steak. Jammy blackberry cobbler, cocoa, pencil shavings and dark minerals all float together toward a long, sumptuous finish. Amarones are my favorite reds. — 9 days ago

Zenato

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2010

Decomposing hazelnuts on this very big, expressive nose.

Heavy handed, anise, clove, cinnamon bark, prune, waves of powdered Peruvian chocolate, Hazelnuts again, as a wrap up flavor, then, the addition of a lingering tangelo acid, now mingled with the hazelnut tannins.
An excellent choice for a birthday wine.
Decanted for 8 hours, as I have found Amarone demands.

Zenato

Cresasso Veronese Corvina 2010

Dark, rich , robust. Beautiful Corvina blend that tantalizes your taste buds. My wife and I drank this a few weeks back. I wish I could remember what we ate with it. For a wine of this calibre I would definately have paired it with something suitable for the occassion. Hmm...thinking maybe pasta bolognese...florentine style steak? Anyways this full bodied Gem will make you a believer of the Zenato brand. Dark rich fruit..plums and cherries. Hope to find this one again.👍🍷 — 18 days ago

Bure Alto Ripasso della Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2014

Vintage 2014 / I never forget my visit to the ‘Bure Alto’ vineyard, because I was impressed how high the vines were tied and grown. It’s an amazing site. This wine has a compelling smell: warm, spices, coffee, mocca and even chocolate. Smooth drinking with deer goulash and stewed bell pepper. #valpolicella #ripasso — 8 days ago

Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2009

Asphalt and earth on the nose, big, beautiful and so pure. Balsamic and black fruit. Channeling Napa Cab at this stage, I’d hold these. I’m a QuintaGeek, not ever objective. — 12 days ago

Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2009

We had a bottle left over from Christmas and ended up drinking it with chili in August. Surprisingly easy to drink, even with food in the middle of summer! Complex, but not heavy, with pronounced dried fruit and floral notes. — 9 days ago
