Soave Classico Garganega 2017

La Rocca, made from 100% Garganega and aged for 15 months in large barrels. Bright lemon yellow with aromas of tropical fruits and oak notes, very rich and complex. On the palate apple, pear and orange zest with nutty flavors and lively acidity. Smooth and elegant the wine ends with oak, mineral notes and a bit of spice. Nice! Tasting Sample. — 16 days ago

Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2010

Drinking a 2010 vintage in December 2019 and this wine is still drinking quite well and it could be argued that it’s at or near it’s peak. Excellent nose, beautiful color and lasting finish. Pairs well with red meats, stews, soups, cheeses and breads. Also roasted pork dishes that are more flavorful. Glad I bought a case and cellared it for several years. — 10 days ago

Allegrini

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2014

Giovanni Allegrini was the founder of the new generation and revolutionized changes to accepted practices. A blend of Corvina Veronese 45%, Corvinone 45%,Rondinella 5% & Oseleta 5%, deep Ruby with aromas of dried dark fruits, spice and herb, about 120 days of appassimento. Palate shows ripe cherry and strawberry flavors with fig, cacao, flint and mineral tones. Soft smooth tannins well balanced with acidity on a long spicy finish. Will continued to get better. Tasting Sample. — 18 days ago

Le Muraie Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend

Medium bodied with slight leather & tobacco notes in a nice way! Very nice. Lovely change from Cabs. More like a nice Merlot in weight and feel. Loving a 2015 vintage on 12/10/19! — 3 days ago

Monte Grande Soave Classico Garganega 2010

Garganega is a Northern Italian varietal that brings golden apple and dried apricot. Some aromas of honeyed almond and oak, with a sharp, astringent finish. Subtle and complex. Nice as a winter aperitif or with semi-hard cheeses. — 5 days ago

la Fabriseria Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2010

Omigod omigod Omigod. So many O’s all for Valpolicella. This is SO GOOD I can’t even but I will. Smells like red fruits and plums and cinnamon and cedar. Tastes elegantly rich, like all the things you smelled put on a crown and a velvet cape and took to an autumn’s night absorbing the flavors of fallen leaves and bitter licorice. Goodness gracious. This wine is an opera. — 23 days ago
