Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 1989

Holy cow... 30 years and this wine is incredible! It hadn't lost ANYTHING. The fruit was gorgeous - velvety Luxardo cherry reduction, gravel mineral tones, fresh flowers on the nose, dried prunes.. they don't make wine like this in Valpolicella anymore I can tell you that much. This wine in the vintage could go to 40 or 50 years of age. — 15 hours ago

Coming back to this wine a year and a half after I first rated it...still love it. Nice hints of fruit and exceptionally drinkable. Will continue to stock it as a house red — 3 days ago

Cà de’ Rocchi (Tinazzi)

Cà dè Rocchi Monterè Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Corvina Blend 2016

Much too young... Nice minerality on the nose with gun powder and crushed rocks along a bit fruit and raisin. Strong acid backbone, strong tannins and a somewhat astringent finish with fruit and a drying impression. Too young yes, but very nice potential! — 5 days ago

Superiore Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2016

Winebow inc NY. 13.5% abv. Dusty, raisins and cherry notes. Cherry. Raisin. Graphite. Meat. Spice and herb. Balanced bright acidity and medium smooth tannin. Very fresh without tasting green/too young. Bright cherry wine. Delicious on the second day too but slightly overpowered by the acid. — 2 days ago

Masua di Jago Classico Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2013

A lighter style of Amarone suitable for everyday drinking. Almost more like a Ripasso in weight and depth. Not sure if this gets to the USA. From magnum. — 13 days ago

Oh my. What an amazing Amarone. Dark cherry and overripe red fruit, licorice and tobacco. Very round and spicy. Long finish, very adequate to end with! — a day ago

Azienda Agricola La Giaretta

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend

In the nose, fruity and juicy. A strong presence of red fruit, cherries and the like in this medium bodied dry red. On the palate, oaky with a bit of acidity. Tastes of darker fruits in the beginning, then a nice bite from the tannins. Good balance with a decent finish. — 17 days ago
