Natalie's Score: 95/100

Smoky and dark yet elegant in a muscular way. This brooding Italian red wine offers black fruit aromas and smoke on the nose. Underneath and on the palate there's a sensual layer of black fleshy ripe fruit and dark spices. Oh yes! Classic Amarone with some nuances of wild violets and black cherry liqueur on the finish. Best consumed with hearty meat dishes and robust conversation.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico food pairings: borscht, beef, osso buco.

Reviews and Ratings

The 2016 vintage of this Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is intense and concentrated with great balance and structure and finish. The 2011 vintages was a warm one which shows in the ripeness of the fruit. Finishes with dark spices. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.
