Corte de Signori

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2008

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim. Not showing age at all.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead, wet leaves, spices, coffee, chocolates, tobacco, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and nice legs.


Dry on the palate and fruity with blueberries, cherries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, vegetables, green herbs, mint and tobacco leaf.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a great wine. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing great complexity and a great mouthfeel. This is a wine that you want to talk about while drinking.

Needs 2 hours to open up a properly. This 10 year old still has many years in it, and it is beginning to drink nicely now. Tasty and delicious.

A blend of 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Molinara. Aged for 30 months in large Slovenian oak barrels.

15% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$60.

Gran Passione

Rosso Veneto Corvina Merlot 2013

Thursday night Rosso to go with a simple pasta dish tonight. Notes forthcoming...

Color is a very deep purple, looking like one of those wines you're going to be cautious with spillage, likely a permanent stainer.

Nose is still tight, giving up dark berry fruits and green pepper right now. (Update, vegetal/methoxypyrazine aromas have dissipated, loads of black fruits are flowing out of the glass.)

Palate is all blackberry, black cherry and sweet blueberry, tannins are quite gentle.

I'm expecting some improvement as we gain more air time tonight. BTW $12, this wine's a steal, I always love finding budget wines that really deliver!

Valpolicella Superiore Corvina Blend 2001

This wine goes as far as Valpolicella can go without being Amarone (that’s a flavor AND cost assessment). Beautifully priced and made, the seriousness and quality is there to pair with great hearty fare. Still plenty of finesse, with some delicacy on the nose, and a palate that never takes over. — 3 days ago

Really cool wine, had it cold. A valpo blend bit without ripaso and only aged a very short time. 2017 vintage. Bright fruit, amazing gamy/pepper spice. Love this wine for the price. Food, yes please. — 13 days ago

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2011

Less sweet than the pinot enjoyed before, but this had nice savory brambly black cherry and herb. Finish including fig and some blac licorice. Gained some weight and heat on the finish. Enjoyable. — 7 days ago
