Top 15 Valpolicella Tasted in 2014

Next » 1 of 15
Previously available for $17.79
Chalky and tight on the nose with reticent notes of dried herbs and emerging notes of tobacco, and huge soil tones. This is a big Valpolicella, a little chewy, packed with fruit that retains a nice edge of bitterness that recalls apple,seeds. Air brings out the violets on the nose, while bright acids add lift to the juicy blueberry, red currant, and strawberry fruits on the palate. Finishing with huge mineral cut and super tannic reverb, this almost has a jammy quality to the fruit but then so much freshness coming from acid and minerality lends this energy and vibrancy in the mouth. The power of Amarone, the vibrancy of Valpolicella. 92pts
