Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2010

Always treat yourself to a good birthday wine from your rack!

A huge nose of raisin and prune, as to be expected with both an aged wine, and one of this method.
Huge body, with hints of mint, touches of older, dried herbs. The fruit in this is dark cherry, roast peach, olive oil.
Totally worth aging these. Yum!
Light, gritty tannin all the way through, with the perfect pitch of acidity to counteract the fruit.

Getting better and better over the years, this is drinking at peak now and probably another 2 or 3 years.
Delicious.

Sanperetto Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2016

BlackBerry, plum on the nose, very pleasant smell. I’m would say it’s more medium than full body even though the waiter said it was a full body (he brought it over and said he drink it himself). It’s a very good wine. β€” 8 hours ago

Le Bignele Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2016

I love this one! Raisins, cherry and a slight touch of pencil lead. The palate is exquisite. Some structure with an acid backbone that gives this palate a frame, some soft touches and roundness, raisins coming back here to add a sugary, sweet touch to a rather dry wine, no real tannins to speak of, and an everlasting finish with raisins and cherry. It shows very little complexity at first and then you understand how many layers there are. This is real good stuff β€” 8 days ago

Soave Classico Garganega 2017

This vintage seems particularly vibrant and electric right now. Tart pear, white peach, lemon curd, honeydew melon and crushed rocks overlaying a texture that is both delicate and saturating on the palate. Lots of savory spice and almond character on the long finish. Highly recommended. β€” 14 days ago

'MONTE CARBONARE' SOAVE CLASSICO Garganega 2004

I've always liked Monte Carbonare
It's at peak
It is not a common wine
It's long and complex, but I reckon it's a drink for someone who looks for that something more

Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2013

Medium Garnet with aromas of jammy dried fruits and sweet spice. On the palate dried cherry, blackberry jam and licorice flavors. Full body, medium acidity and soft tannins, well balanced, long finish ending with pepper spice and warming alcohol. Drinks well now, recommend not to age further. Tasting Sample. β€” 9 days ago

Cadis Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2015

Raisins, graphite, pencil lead, cherry, a very inviting nose. The palate is wonderful! Superb balance with a strong acid backbone, a very nice fruit (cherry) and raisins touches too. A very suave and soft touch on the sides. As long as wide, this wine is showing nice levels of complexity. Gentle tannins and an expending finish with raisins and cherry. The finish is wider than the palate, what a ride! 3rd encounter and again blown away. Levels!

Recioto della Valpolicella Valpantena Corvina Blend

Beautiful red and black fruit flavors. Not as sweet as I expected. Big hint of raisins on the finish. Very refreshing, especially on a hot day. Good way to end a meal. β€” 7 hours ago
