Bosan Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2005

Another Wednesday Wine Committee in the books. Great hosting by @Bill Makens . 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine all served blind.

Only the second Amarone I’ve had that has been truly fantastic. This was raisiny but not overly stewed and muddled. It was more dusty and fig based. Blackberry compote, Mexican vanilla, dark chocolate and candied dark fruits on the nose. Rich and decadent with graham cracker, black cherry liqueur and a small spice note toward the back of the palate. Lots of guesses of CdP and Sonoma zin. I went back and forth between zin and mid 2000s Aussie Cab.

So much better with this kind of age.

Check out Zenato, and let them sleep for at least 3-4 years if you can keep your hands of them.

Vigneti Le Tordare Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2001

Unexpectedly given this bottle of 2001 drank today with friends on 9152019. Complex aromas of dark fruits figs dates and cooling herbs like mint. Rich and full palate wth spiced figs roasted nuts. Cool soothing finish a delight. — 2 days ago

Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2011

While this is Quintarelli's current vintage it does show its age with a medium Garnet color and aromas that are mainly tertiary in nature - the cherry fruit is underpinned with earth, forest floor, leather, wet stone and tobacco. I doubt it will improve with further age and I don't expect it will gain more charm. All in all a surprisingly austere effort — 12 days ago

Superiore Ripasso Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2015

Amazing value. Top 2015 vintage. Scored 96 pts by Decanter. Lives up to the high rating. Scrumptious tannins, chewy red fruits and elegantly structured. Epic buy at under 30 dollaroos #ripasso — 7 days ago

Villa Cavarena Valpolicella Ripasso Corvina Blend 2017

Bright sour cherry notes with an underlying hint of almond. The terroir balances the acid and fruit quite nicely. Some raisin hints give this wine the right amount of depth for a ripasso. Very nice example. — a day ago

La Nogara Classico Bardolino Corvina Blend 2018

Approachable but not without depth. Nose is powerfully aromatic with cherry and eucalyptus. Palate is light, easy drinking with cherry, rhubarb and baking spice. Outstanding wine. One of my favs in a long time. — 2 days ago

Big fella. Sweet cherry, leather and raisins. It reminds me of homemade nut roll. It’s been open for a few hours and the aromatics are fantastic. — 9 days ago

(1607) Valpolicella Ripasso Corvina Blend 2015

Dark cherries, smoky leather, pretty tannic. Interesting balance of elements for this style. Can’t tell if I’m too inexperienced/unsophisticated to fully grasp the balance, or if they’re presenting too sequentially vs. harmonically. I like it, but I expected something different. Worth trying again with a different dish. — 5 days ago

Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend

Brie cheese funk in the nose upon opening. Dissipated into dark chocolate, rasins and broken cherry tree branch green woodiness. Left the bottle open, uncorked, for 23 hours and came back to this tremendous complexity. Should age beautifully! — 6 days ago
