Acinum Valpolicella Ripasso DOP 2015 Product #32572 (In Stock)
Acinum Valpolicella Ripasso DOP 2015 Acinum Valpolicella Ripasso DOP 2015

You can look at this wine two ways.  Technically, it's Valpolicella Ripasso, a blend of Veneto grapes (mainly Corvina) poured onto the pressings from Amarone production to take on more body and complexity.  But we think you'll really want to think of this as your new "go to" all-purpose Italian red.  Loads of dark blackberry, Bing cherry, and licorice aromas and flavors here in a wine that really fills up your mouth, but never turns heavy.  Finishes with light tannins and juicy cherry/berry fruit.  Pizza, pasta, burgers - whatever is fun to eat will taste just great with this!

Musella Recioto 2011 (375ml) Product #32081 (In Stock)
Musella Recioto 2011  (375ml) Musella Recioto 2011  (375ml)

Recioto is Amarone left sweet - in this case, gloriously, richly, deeply, sweet but remarkably fragrant and fresh, too.  Musella only makes Recioto in great vintages, using the very best grapes of the harvest dried on straw mats for 150 days.  The aromas and flavors here call to mind dried cranberry, raspberry and raisin with a bunch of wild herb (thyme? Rosemary?) and then sweet black cherry and raspberry on the finish. A burst of red berry acid cleans up the finish and pulls you back for more.  A blend of  Corvina 50% Corvinone 10%, Rondinella 10%, Croatina 15%, Oseleta 15%  fermented in open top oak fermenters and then aged 2 years in neutral barrel.

Acinum Amarone della Valpolicella Docg 2012 Product #31953 (In Stock)
Acinum Amarone della Valpolicella Docg 2012 Acinum Amarone della Valpolicella Docg 2012

The review way under-rates this wine - an Amarone that's both fun to drink and food friendly.

"Black-skinned fruit, pressed violet and a whiff of chopped herbs lead the nose on this full-bodied red. The bold palate offers high-toned flavors of ripe black cherry, black raspberry, mint and a hint of fig uplifted by fresh acidity. Firm, velvety tannins give it a smooth texture."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

Speri Amarone Della Valpolicella Sant' Urbano 2012 Product #31553 (In Stock)
Speri Amarone Della Valpolicella Sant' Urbano 2012 Speri Amarone Della Valpolicella Sant' Urbano 2012

"Dark ruby with a pale rim. Penetrating red cherry, cinnamon, minerals and botanical herbs on the perfumed, captivating nose; this has a strong aromatic quality that I rarely find in Amarone. Then slightly more austere in the mouth, with strong herbal elements adding a savory component to the ripe but vibrant red fruit flavors. Finishes long with a firm tannic spine, young, chewy tannins, and hints of gunflint. A knockout Amarone and one of the early candidates for wine of the vintage in the difficult 2012 vintage."  Vinous (d'Agata) 92 points

"This complex and fragrant wine opens with dried violet, black plum and cooking spice aromas. The smooth, well-structured palate doles out blackberry jam, pipe tobacco, ripe black cherry, nutmeg and licorice flavors. Velvety tannins provide elegant support. Drink through 2027."Wine Enthusiast 94 points
