Jacopo Poli

Cleopatra Amarone Oro Grappa

Oh shit! This stuff is 🔥 it touches the tongue like water and then burns all the way down the throat like a fiery elevator shaft. Lingering finish is delicious. Floral and sweet. Such good stuff. — a day ago

Le Bessole Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2007

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose with black cherries, oak, earth, raisins, dried figs, vanilla, licorice, cloves, cedar, light vegetables, mint, graphite, tobacco, chocolates, coffee and peppercorn.

Full bodied, smooth and bold, with medium plus acidity and long long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, sweet cherries, oak, strawberry pie, coffee, vanilla, licorice, cloves, cinnamon, tobacco, leather, earth, light vegetables, herbs and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a very tasty Red from Italy. Not fully balanced yet, but already very enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

This 11 year old Amarone, needs a few more years in the bottle to mature and balance itself out.

Good right out of the bottle and better and better with time as it needs 3 hours to open up properly and show some tannins.

15% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$55.

Masi

Riserva Costasera Amarone Classico Corvina Blend 2010

2.5 years of aging. This is fantastic. Chewy plum and raisin with fresh cut herbs, pepper, and smoke. This is in a really good spot right now but I’m not convinced it can go the distance. — 10 days ago

Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2007

At Maple & Ash in Chicago, a spot I was really impressed with. This was an elegant wow wine. Crushed rocks enveloped by sweet, dark red fruit. Ample tannic presence but no hard edges and absolutely no raisin-y qualities which can show with an over abundance with Amarone. — 8 days ago

Not sure why I made that connection while reviewing, I’ve had this many times. A couple with you. I just bought some Quintarelli Amarone on-line, perhaps that is it or I’m just old. 🤷🏻‍♂️. None the less, this was in a special place.

Valdo

Extra Dry Prosecco di Valdobbiadene

Valdo was started in 1926 by the Societa Anonima Vini Superiori and purchased by The Bolla Family in the 1940's. Straw yellow with fruit and floral aromas. Small bubbles with peach and ripe apple fruit tastes, nice balance between fruit and crispness. Nice value. Tasting Sample. — 10 days ago

Famiglia Pasqua

'Romeo & Juliet' Passion e Sentimento Merlot Blend

Amazingly I got this great tasting wine in majestic for 7.99. It knocks the socks off many more expensive wines & is filled with great fruity deep flavours including cherry notes that linger on. Delighted to have found this. — 10 days ago

San Rustico

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2011

Starting to show its age. I think it will continue to get better. Fruit flavors are stewed/raisinated if you’re into that. I think it’s a good buy for ~$20. Tasted blind. — 14 days ago
