Natalie's Score: 92/100

A corpulent, full-bodied red that floods the senses with rich, earthy aromas and black cherry liqueur notes. This singular sensation wafts out of the glass and comes more than half way to meet you with all its pleasure.

Amarone Delle Valpolicella food pairings: braised meats or mushroom sauce , lamb, grilled with spices or cheese, especially aged, creamy and strongly flavoured.

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2007 Tedeschi Amarone Della Valpolicella is composed of 30% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella and 10% of combined Rossignola, Oseleta, Negrara, Dindarella; picked from 20+ year old vines and aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 2-3 years before being bottled. It is a full bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of black currant, blackberry, mushrooms and faint oak and vanilla at opening, while longer opening reveals notes of red currant, cranberry and slight greenness. It has an intense fruit, good structure with refined tannins (decant for 30+ min) and checked acidity; the finish is long and silky. Very food friendly, but I recommend sipping it by itself for full appreciation; tuck few bottles away and drink them now-2020, as this wine has evolution potential. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91+ pts - recommended buy well worth the price, nice treat from the LCBO Essentials. Tasted Jan/13.

Firm and intense with spicy raisin and vanilla on the nose, floral, earthy notes with mineral hints. Full bodied with loads of luscious, chewy dried fruit and a long silky finish. A very classy well structured wine.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
