Ripassa Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Corvina Blend 2016

Dark purple color. A baby Amarone. Aromas and flavors of black currant, plum, black olives, lavender baking spices, figs, iron and black olives. Hint of bitter coffee and smoke on the very long finish. Medium-plus body. So complex. Thanks for sharing, Ron B! — 3 days ago

Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2015

Delectable Wine

The 2015 Valpolicella Classico Superiore lifts up with unprecedented freshness as a beautiful mix of fresh cherries, cloves and cedar is complemented by rosy florals. This is a model of purity, slightly salty in character, with crisp red fruits and sweet spice nuances. It tapers off lightly structured and perfumed, leaving the palate perfectly reset as a tinge of minerality lingers. The warm vintage 2015 is complex yet finessed. Simply stunning.

Classico Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2017

Tasted too young and not airy enough. Nevertheless: exuberant nose, big matter in the mouth, omnipresent tannins, alcohol present, sweetness, acidity, aromatic bouquets, everything is marked! The breeding is already relatively melted. A wine carved for the guard. To forget a few years in the cellar. Very nice product!

Bu trop jeune et pas assez aéré. Néanmoins: nez exubérant, grosse matière en bouche, tanins omniprésents, alcool présent, sucrosité, acidité, bouquets aromatiques, le tout est marqué! L’élevage est déjà relativement fondu. Un vin taillé pour la garde. À oublier quelques années en cave. Très beau produit!

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2015

Delectable Wine

There's an almost-woodsy character to the 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico. It opens with a complex blend of woodland herbs and underbrush giving way to wild berries, cinnamon sticks, shaved cedar and crushed rocks. It's surprisingly energetic yet still quite potent, with an intense wave of ripe red fruits offset by hints of spiced citrus and cloves. This finishes remarkably long, yet it maintains a vibrancy seldom seen from Amarone, as autumnal spices and staining of raspberry preserves taper off under an air of violet-tinged florals.

Soave Classico Garganega 2021

Delectable Wine

The 2021 Soave Classico wafts up with a wildly fresh bouquet, blending sweet smoke with crushed rocks, pear and lemon oil. It's silky and refined, ripe in style, yet perfectly balanced with lime-tinged orchard fruits and a touch of exotic inner florals toward the close. The 2021 cleans up beautifully, crisp and refreshing with a mineral tinge, adding tension as chamomile hints slowly taper off. (Eric Guido, Vinous, March 2023) — 10 hours ago

Tenuta Sant'Antonio

Selezione Antonio Castagnedi Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2005

A little oxidized, but still tasty. Powerful wine with hints of dry plumb, aged cherry, and tea. Fruity with dry finish. Delicious! Would give it a 9+ if we drank it back in 2015 or 2018. But for an 18 year old wine, it still packs a punch. 15.5% vol. — 2 days ago


Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2018

Delectable Wine

Cocoa, cinnamon and clove come together with crushed plums and balsam herbs as the 2018 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico blossoms in the glass. This is silky and enveloping yet cool-toned in feel, with depths of dark red fruits nicely contrasted by a core of saline minerality. The 2018 finishes structured and long, tugging at the palate with grippy tannins as hints of Baker's chocolate and inner rose slowly fade. This is a vertical and racy edition of Allegrini Amarone, but it will require some time to come fully into focus. (Eric Guido, Vinous, March 2023) — 11 hours ago

Cantine Buglioni

Il Bugiardo Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2019

Delectable Wine

The 2019 Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso Il Bugiardo wafts up with a darkly floral mix of crushed black cherries, sage and mocha. This is round and supple on the palate, lifted by cooling minerality as juicy acidity motivates its tart wild berry fruit. The 2019 tapers off with a bitter twang of balsamic spice yet leaves the mouth watering for more. Il Bugiardo is a Ripasso that readers could easily bring to the dinner table.
