Case Vecie Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2009

Smoky and layered but overly plummy too. 2010 was much better recently. — 7 days ago

Tenuta Santa Maria alla Pieve

Riserva Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2013

Everything you’d want in an amarone. Burst of flavor at the beginning that then settles back into a relaxed, elegant finish. On the palate, some black plum mixed with a very faint dried cranberry or cherry. It all resolved into a wonderfully balanced finish, that is almost floral, but it’s more deep and complex than just floral. — 8 days ago

Tenuta di Corte Giacobbe

Soave Garganega 2018

Racy limestone minerality meet lemon pith and orchard fruit. Has a Chablis sensibility. Zippy acidity, with lemon and lime fruit. There is a sweet tart chalky fruit character too. Solid, enjoyable finish. Tart fruit is the predominant character on the palate. — 9 days ago

Le Bignele Classico Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2013

Raisin, cherry, Raspberry, pencil lead, a bit of heat. Very wide and long palate with a extreme acid backbone and a lovely red fruit all along. It's radiating in all directions! Soft mouth feel but with a grip, a small tanginess in the rear, that gorgious fruit playing a very long tune for a wonderful finale with raisins notes. This is great! — 2 days ago

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend

This is a beauty of a wine. At first the tannins feel a little too tart, though with food the flavours balance and the palate changes. This is a luxury purchase, and it leaves me questioning whether it is objectively better than a wine costing half as much, though then i remember the techniques involved and it suddenly is worth every penny. A treat — 2 days ago

L'Errante Veronese IGT Red Bordeaux Blend

We both tasted this blind. Agreed high alcohol. Acidity. I wrote Slate or stone soil. Ripe, stewed fruit. Warmer climate. Some herbaceous notes. Spice. I guessed a merlot driven blend over 5years old. It was 2003. — 3 days ago

i Castei Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2015

This is a nice Amarone. Showing red and black fruits with wood vanilla earth spices chocolates tobacco mocha and peppercorn.

Dry and fruit forward with a tangy finish.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins (45 minutes).

Simple and good by itself or with food. I paired it with a Filet Mignon and asparagus.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

I Classici Bardolino Chiaretto Rosé Blend 2018

I think I’m going to like Italian rosés if this one is representative. Tangy and just a touch funky. Really quite lovely. Definitely a better value than Bandol these days at only $12. — 4 days ago
