Ripassa Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Corvina Blend 2013

Beautiful deep purple color with a nice, translucent red edge at the glass.

Nose has plum, cedar, violets, cedar, moist earth and fresh black pepper.

Palate has plum, black cherry, bitter dark chocolate, over-ripe strawberry and faint oak.

This wine is very plumy, and just delicious. 2021-23+ for future bottles, likely in a very nice place in 8-10 years past vintage. QPR delivered at our purchase price of $24!

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2012

I don’t have much experience with Amarone so I don’t know how characteristic this is. But it was very lush and big without being overly fruity or cloying. Hints of the raisin character with a solid finish. It did not seem like the 15.5% alcohol it says at all. Very nice . From Trader Joe’s . — 9 days ago

Villa Cavarena Valpolicella Ripasso Corvina Blend

I'm always bias for Italian wine, especially Venetian wines... I love Amarone and Rossos de Valpolicella in general. So feminine, yet when they open up they are so masculine. Notes of strawberry, fig, Italian herbs, eucalyptus, and barnyard... A must try if you're a fan of Italian! — 11 days ago

Masi

Costasera Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2012

In 1958, Masi was in the forefront of the work to identify the historic "cru" vineyard sites for Amarone. The ‘12 is a big rich powerful wine from a hot vintage. Aromas of ripe dark fruits, cooking spice and smoky notes. On the palate blackberry flavors, raisin like plum tones with cacao and cinnamon spice. Rich tannins, soft, lingering well balanced ending with smoky spice. Very Nice. Tasting Sample. — 6 days ago

Rolar Selection Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 1985

Yes, it would have been better 10 years ago. But still has a beautiful color, that dried fruit nose and taste. Some reviewers of Amarone have described its sensuousness; and though I am not quite sure what that means in wine, if it means anything, this one still has it. — 11 days ago

Palazzo della Torre Veronese Corvina Blend 2014

The wine shows a bit bit hot on the nose at first, but settles down quickly. Aromas of stewed figs and red fruit come paired with autumn spices and earth. It’s a hearty red, with red plums, cassis, and more spice on the palate. I paired it with pappardelle and lamb shank, to much delight. — 5 days ago

Decanted this wine 8-9 hours prior to dinner, think the consensus of the group was wine of the evening. — 2 days ago
