Roccolo Grassi Valpolicella Superiore 2013 Product #32834 (In Stock)
Roccolo Grassi Valpolicella Superiore 2013 Roccolo Grassi Valpolicella Superiore 2013

This is one of those, "I had no idea that kind of wine could be so good!"  In this case, the wine is Valpolicella, which gets tons of attention in its Amarone (dried grape) form, but not so much in the traditional form.  And, to be fair, most straight Valpo isn't worth much attention for all of it's juicy, thirst-quenching, fruit.  Easy drinking, everyday, red value is the normal form.

Nothing "everyday" or even "traditional" here!  Roccolo Grassi is considered a "modernist" for his commitment to harvesting at perfect ripeness, fleshy extraction, and use of new French oak.  And his decision to air-dry about half the grapes used here, giving this a dash of Amarone depth and power without the over-the-top alcohol or dried fruit. There's amazing richness and depth here, with bold and generous dark fruit and complex accents of smoke, chocolate, walnut, nutmeg and milk chocolate.  As fine as Valpo ever gets.

Roccolo Grassi Amarone 2012 Product #33171 (In Stock)
Roccolo Grassi Amarone 2012 Roccolo Grassi Amarone 2012

As Wine Advocate said a few years ago, "Of the “modernist” school in Valpolicella, Roccolo Grassi delivers some of the most distinctive red, white and dessert wines in northern Italy." In the difficult 2012 harvest, this is a marvel of deep richness, chocolaty smoothness, and intense power.  Smoky black plum, tobacco and Christmas spice aromas gain strength in the mouth where black pepper, milk chocolate and super-ripe raspberry flavors emerge.  Finishes firm and long and intense.  Better from 2020 but tasty now with a decant.
