Acinatico Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2015

9.4

Extremely well made - almost a pnp but evolved quickly once in the decanter - a slight interesting sweetness to the wine - bold but elegant - expressive - not a typical complex amorone - mouthfeel and finish could improve - fruit forward with red and black fruit dancing and integrated nicely - for the money pleasantly surprised — 12 days ago

Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2013

Really needed to open up. Better the next day. Decent for longer next time - 30 min. at least. Not very heavy for an Amarone but still smooth. Bought on WTSO. — 15 days ago

Tenuta Gugi

Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2015

A huge wine; nearly port-like. Massive, rich, raisiny fruit (almost Luxardo cherry-like), chocolate, figs and baking spices. The tannins are stiff but not punishing. A touch boozy but what do you expect? I don’t drink Amarone very often but this was fun to share with the boys while we complain about our country’s continuously ever more tragic trade policy. Tariffs on French wine, Scotch whiskey and Italian cheeses?!! 🤦🏼‍♂️ — 13 days ago

Villa Cavarena

Valpolicella Corvina Blend

Sept 28, 2019. J2’s 5th bonus year celebration. TW Concierge offering April 2017. Purchased this and the Amarone. This is s solid Ripasso. Tart cherries, of course but not overpowering. Smooth, no pepper, hint of chocolate. 70% Corvina, 30% Rondinella. I believe Villa Cavarena is an Allegrini family label, from their Co-op? Definitely Allegrini quality and for <$20/bottle, what’s not to like??? — 18 days ago
