Calvarino Soave Classico Garganega Trebbiano 2018

If I look tired, well who isn’t tired this year has been a million years long which is probably why I’ve wanted lively wines, but ones with intellect. Like the people that know how to have funny energy discussing serious things...is this the John Oliver of wine? It banters of both salted dried peach and bushes encountered on a Midwest hike and lemon conserve. It’s fresh but deep. Like the discourse I’d like to have with like minds. — 8 days ago

But is it smooth and sensual enough to be Rico Soave?

la Fabriseria Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2015

MICHAEL COOPER
9.1

An excellent example of #valpolicella #classico #superiore it’s almost too good for the category and seems more like a #ripasso deep ruby color. Medium+ aromas and flavors of ripe strawberry, and red fruit (ripe red plums and red cherries) then there is a undertone of herbal (sage and sagebrush and thyme) secondary aromas and flavors of subtle oak (tobacco and cedar). — 11 days ago

"Ripasso" Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2017

Delectable Wine
9.1

Deeply alluring with dusty purple-tinged florals, sweet spices and black currants. The 2017 Ripasso is silky with cool-toned textures, further accentuated by vibrant acidity. There’s beautiful symmetry and persistence here, coming across as powerful yet remaining energetic throughout. $22.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2021) — 11 hours ago

Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2013

As per previous tasting note 107 weeks ago. Love these succulent lush savoury fruited Amarones. Priuney notes with dried raisin, milk chocolate, leather, red licorice, tobacco and a touch of cinnamon. On the full bodied palate quite sweet fruited with raisin and milk chocolate flavours finishing with soft largely resolved supple tannins. Good QPR for an Amarone. Nothing like the price of a Quintarelli. — 11 days ago

A lot of variation between vintages and even bottle variation within vintages, the 2014 would score a 93 when I had a bottle that had a striking medicinal herb component that I really like. 2015 was flat and uninteresting. High volume, relatively cheap wine here in Holland

Soave Classico Garganega 2017

9.0

One of the nicer efforts in Soave showing ripe nectarine, white peach, beeswax, lanolin, citrus aromas and a strong vein of minerality mixed with crushed stones. Silky mouthfeel w/firm acidic backbone. — 12 days ago

Lovely, especially for the price. Round and mouth-coating, with a lovely mix of sweet and savory notes. Musky on the nose. Exotic melon and apple on the attack, green almond and hay kick in in the back end. Waxy texture, crunchy finish. Great with charcuterie. — 3 days ago

Monte Lodoletta Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2011

Deep, opaque purple hue. A concentrated concoction of balsamic, chocolate, smoke and bitter black cherry. Perhaps a few more years will help it fan out and impart a more secondary element. — 4 days ago

Usually a consistently solid choice Ripasso.
