Natalie's Score: 93/100

From the Veneto wine region, this is the Sunday-dinner-with-the-family size (1500 ml) of Masi's Campolongo Di Torbe 2012 Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico. Brilliant and bold on the palate with a mouthful of vibrant cherry, roasted wild herbs, dark chocolate and spicy flavours on the palate accompanied by rich tannins. Mama, I need spaghetti and meatballs topped with lots of Parmesan Reggiano cheese. This vintage was awarded 3 Glasses out of 3 in the 2021 Gambero Rosso Italian Wines Guide.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico food pairings: roast prime rib, venison tenderloin, veal Porterhouse, roast quail, Bistecca Florentine, veal Parmesan, meat-lover's pizza.

Reviews and Ratings

This is the magnum size (1500 ml) of Masi's Campolongo Di Torbe 2012 Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico. This is a gorgeous and sexy, full-bodied, supple Amarone with liquid black cherry, fine herb, baking spice, smoky vanilla flavours and a long, satisfying finish. Tannins are structured and fine. Drink or hold... on second thought, it's too good to hold. - Community Wine Reviews

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

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.
