More Wine Reviews and Ratings

rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Rich black cherry and red licorice notes with a slight herbal lift. The generous depth of flavour is due to the ripasso method, while the tannins remain light and easy drinking due to the grape varieties. A delightful combination; perfectly supported by light oak and refreshing acidity. An excellent accompaniment to beef carpaccio. Drink now through 2017.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

After Amarone is finished fermenting, the pomace of the dried grapes used to produce it is joined with the Valpolicella . Second fermentation raises the alcohol and gives the wine deeper colour, richer body and aromas. Deep ruby red, it offers rich, elegant, lingering scents; it is crisp and dry in the mouth, well structured, with a lovely, velvety texture. Can be cellared several years. Serving Suggestions Ideal with all game, roasts, and grilled/barbecued dishes

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.
