Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Aromas of hazelnuts, dried fruit and sweet hay greet you on the nose. Gorgeously silky, smooth on the palate with concentrated cherry and fleeting mushroom notes. The finish is excellent. If you are an Amarone fan this will not disappoint. Pair with braised beef short ribs of boar ragu. Tasted Nov 15, 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Zeni Barriques 2013 Amarone Della Valpolicella is smoky on the nose with ripe dark fruit and liquid dark cherry aromas. Layers of dark cherry, spiced plum, black currant, dark chocolate, dark spice and dried savoury herb flavours on the palate. A full-bodied red blend of 60% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
