Zardini Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2014 Product #31448 (In Stock)
Zardini Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2014 Zardini Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2014

A rarity here:  a nicely priced Ripasso that really does evoke Amarone character in a rich, crowd-pleasing, style.  Black berry, dried fruit, smoke and chocolate aromas and flavors lead the way.  There's good richness and plushness to the texture and a streak of chocolate and dried fruit that starts in the middle and flows on through the powerful, but supple, finish.

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.

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
