The 2013 Amarone della Valpolicella is a full-bodied, big Italian red produced by the Famiglia Pasqua. Juicy and textured with layers of dark fruit, dried berry, plum fruit blackberry liqueur and savoury spice flavours on the palate. Good five-year cellaring candidate.

Amarone Della Valpolicella food pairings: bucatini with peas, roast beef, pizza.

Reviews and Ratings

Famiglia Pasqua 2013 is a full-bodied and juicy Amarone Della Valpolicella from the Veneto wine region. Smoky ripe dark cherries, prune, blackberry and sweet dried tobacco leaf aromas on the nose. Lovely, cherry liqueur, ripe dark fruit, smoky sweet cake spice and vanilla flavours on the palate. Luxurious and complex. Pair with hearty meat dishes. This vintage was awarded three of three glasses in the 2018 Gambero Rosso. Tannins are firm. Pair with a bistecca Florentine. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
