  1. ALLEGRINI 2014 AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA

    Item #: i_301902
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    GAMBERO ROSSO GUIDE - TRE BICCHIERI (3 GLASSES) 2014 Vintage

    Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta are left to air dry at least until December and are checked daily to ensure perfectly healthy grapes. Lengthy refining and ageing finally yields a red wine that has become emblematic of Italian oenology, alongside Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino.

    "A fresh, creamy, medium- to full-bodied red, with fine, supple tannins layered with flavors of crushed black raspberry, fig cake and spiced orange, offering a subtle, savory underpinning of smoky mineral and tobacco that lingers on the finish. Long and elegant."

  2. DAL FORNO ROMANO 2010 AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA MONTE LODOLETTA

    Item #: i_301024
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 98
    WINE ADVOCATE 98 POINTS - "This is a deeply communicative and articulate wine that boasts immense power and persistence. The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta is a creation of enormous beauty and unflinching intensity. The wine speaks at loud volumes with black cherry, spice, tarry smoke, barbecue marinade and grilled rosemary. Those balsam notes add length and continuity to the bouquet. In the mouth, the wine is complete and penetrating. It wraps thickly over the palate to soothe and entice your taste buds. Yet there is enough crispness to keep it from feeling cloying or too heavy. There is a point of tannic astringency on the finish that will accompany this wine over the next decade of its aging evolution. For that reason, it's best to wait before popping the cork on this memorable vinous experience."

  3. GUISEPPE QUINTARELLI 2009 AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO

    Item #: i_301341
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    The late, great Maestro del Veneto, Giuseppe Quintarelli, succeeded in establishing his mythical and legendary estate during an amazing sixty-year career. All of the tradition, love, heart, and soul of crafting one of the world's finest wines continue at the Quintarelli home and winery in the hills north of Verona. Giuseppe's daughter Fiorenza, his son-in-law Giampaolo, and his grandsons Francesco and Lorenzo are all keeping a close watch over the family’s legacy.

    It is impossible to speak about Quintarelli without superlatives. The name itself stands for so much: the family, the wines, a style, a tradition, a way of doing things. After all the time, effort, patience, and care that go into the making of a bottle of Quintarelli, it truly does mean so much more than wine. Giuseppe, fondly known as "Bepi" to those closest to him, was a perfectionist in every way. From the beautiful handwritten labels, to the best possible quality cork, to the exquisite wine in the bottles, the Quintarelli name is a stamp of authenticity and the ultimate indication of an artisanal, handmade, uncompromising wine of the highest quality.

  8. SANT'ANTONIO 2015 AMARONE DEI GIGLI SELEZIONE ANTONUIO CASTAGNEDI

    Item #: i_303989
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    PRACTICING ORGANIC

    WINE & SPIRITS 92 POINTS - "After deciding not to make any Amarone in the difficult 2014 vintage, the Castagnedi brothers must have been pleased with the qualiry in Selezione, their flagship 2015. The fruit comes from mature vines, and they pick it slightly early to emphasize freshness and to keep the alcohol level around 15 percent. Even so, it's a densely concentrated wine, loaded with notes of clove and vanilla picked up during two years in new French oak tonneaux. The spice notes give way to more savory tones as the wine opens up, the flavors picking up energy as they expand across the palate. For all of its bold spiciness, it finishes dry and balanced."

    WINEMAKER NOTES - With ripe red fruit, spicy aromas of liquorice, black pepper and hints of chocolate. Fat tannins, soft, warm, savoury, elegant, fine and fresh.

  9. SPERI 2013 AMARONE DELLA VALPOLCELLA SANT URBANO

    Item #: i_301676
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Spectator: 92
    James Suckling: 93
    JAMES SUCKLING 93 POINTS - "Another Amarone with crystal clear character of cherry and plum, fresh flowers and hints of lemons. Full body, super linear tannins and a long and focused finish. A wine with elegance and structure. Edgy."

    Winemaker Notes - "Deep red color and very intense bouquet with spicy, aromatic and jammy notes combining power and finesse, prelude to a palate that is rich, sensuous, highly structured and complex, lingering finish. This wine can be enjoyed as a meditation wine, but is excellent when paired with red meats, game, and seasoned cheeses."
    Blend: 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella, 5% Corvinone
