Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

A traditional style of Amarone with classic notes of dried fig and spiced Christmas cake. Lots of sweet juicy fruit on the palate with chocolate and boiled sweets. It is an easy style of Amarone to drink, not as full blown as some of them can be. The grapes are matured on straw drying racks for 4 months to concentrate them before they are made into wine. The wine is matured in Slovenian oak. Pair with a bitter dark chocolate tart. @wrightwineblog
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The restrained nose here eventually opens to figs and spicy chocolate. Fairly bright fruit on the palate with a long finish that ends with chocolate notes ... just like a fine dinner. It is silky, smooth with tannins well in check. Enjoy with short ribs or boar ragu. Tasted October 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A medium-garnet Amarone with strawberry and prune aromas. Some spice and herbal flavours. There can be further aging with this wine. Pair with rich, Italian fare like lasagna and other cheesy pastas.
Remo Farina 2015 is a robust and full-bodied Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico from the Veneto wine region with a traditional red wine blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinaro grapes produced from dried grapes. Always a crowd-pleaser, this vintage is elegant and luxurious with black cherry, plum, smoke, chocolate and raisin, dried fruit flavours on the palate. Enjoy it now with a roast duck. - Community Wine Reviews
