Oracolo Veneto Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

Ron R
9.6

Stunning, brawny, tannic. 15% abv, but it’s tucked in very elegantly.
A very dense, rugged presentation on the palate. Pronounced oak treatment, in a good way. Very fruit-forward, with ripe tannins, and extended finish. Big surprise.

Recioto della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2015

Paired well vs Dove dark chocolate, with fruit of wine and vanilla and chocolate flavors from the chocolate retained, complementary. Astringency of wine heightened somewhat. For 72% Ghirardelli just bitterness emphasized. — 4 days ago

Villa Borghetti Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2014

The nose is *very* powerful : small red berries, tea leaves, caramel and vanilla. A hinch of raspberry too. A bit of warmth as well, and a bit of plum too. Very strong. The palate is powerful too. It starts with a very acid slide that goes down for ever, small red berries all along, layers of complexity : caramel here, soft silky touches there on the sides, franc tannins in the end and a blast of a finish with plum and small red berries dancing in a firework with a nice bitterness and a soft touch that never ends. After yesterday's amarone I wanted some more. This one is more muscular, yesterday's was more subtile and gracious.

Not cheap though, around 45€

Riserva Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 1997

I am learning to like these wines thanks to my friend Bruce Hughes. It needs fat and pepper to cut through the sweetness of the wine. That being said I can appreciate the quality of this wine. — 8 days ago

Limited Edition Romeo and Juliet's Wall Passimento Merlot Blend 2014

Another solid vintage of this favorite. Blend of local red grapes along with Merlot. Appassimento-Style to concentrate the red berry fruit flavors and sugars. Hints of sweet spices. Balanced acidity and velvety tannins. Dark ruby color with a soft round finish. Just made sense for a Valentine’s Day celebration. — 2 hours ago

Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2010

16.5/20 (90/100) Аромат компота из чернослива и сушеных яблок, изюма, инжира и чёрного чая. Тельное с высокой кислотностью, сухими танинами и заметной спиртуозностью. Не самое лучшее амароне, конечно, ему не хватает комплексности. Но для любителей мощных и напористых вин могу рекомендовать. — 8 days ago

Otto Soave Garganega 2016

This wonderful soave tastes like a sunny clear sky if you could drink it. On the nose we’re getting lemon citrus, yellow apple and white flowers. More of the same on the palate with a zingy acidity and a unique finish of stone and minerals. Solid soave. — 10 days ago

Palazzo della Torre Veronese Corvina Blend 2014

A nose of young green cherry bark.

Pom juice with blue fruits, tarragon, touched it roasted oregano. A touch of vanillin on the back end, with fruit skin.

Mid to heavier weight, with a solid fruit/tannin ratio. An innovative and iconic wine. Always worth having one on deck.

Le Bignele Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2016

Baby amarone. Could have been better after a some. Air. Red berries, raisins, chocolate too. Nice nose. The palate is powerful, almost semi dry. Some tannins. Some nice layers of texture. An expending finish with red berries and raisins too. Very cool once again. I could have this every week — 9 days ago
