Winemaker Notes

Ruby red in color, this wine offers intoxicating aromas of dried black cherries, cassis, truffles, and chocolate fudge. On the palate, it is silky, luscious, and complex, with a lingering finish.

Pair with osso bucco, Bordelaise sauces, wild boar ravioli, or grilled cowboy ribeyes.

Critical Acclaim

V94
Vinous

Zesty, vibrant and exotic, the 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico makes a serious impression with its unique bouquet of dried roses, lime zest, cherry sauce, plums and a dusting of crushed violet candies. It’s silky and pliant in texture, motivated by juicy acids, with a mix of ripe strawberry, pomegranate and cranberry sauce, as balsamic spices and hints of almond come forward toward the close. There is so much going on here, as the 2016 resonates on wild berry fruit and sweet inner florals. This may be a more opulent expression of the vintage, but it’s built to last, and sure to win a lot of fans.
