Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is the label used to distinguish Amarone and Recioto wines produced from grapes that come from a specific growing zone of Italy’s Veneto region. The grapes, the trifecta of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, are grown in either the Fumane, Marano, Negara and/or Sant’Ambroglio vineyard areas. The wines labeled as Amarone Classico are considered some of the world’s finest.

  • Le Salette Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico la Marega 2001

    Snoothrank:

    I stumbled upon a bottle of this in my aunt's cellar. Dried figs, plums and straw on the nose that extend onto the palate. Finish not layered or complex but has some depth and bravado. Read More

  • Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico DOC 6 Flaschen In Original-Holzkiste Bertani Grezzana Venetien 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Here we have a wine just hitting its stride and full of aromatic tea, dried soil, dried flowers, a bit of fungi, and an underlying sweetness to the emerging notes of dried meat, licorice and cooked fennel. While the nose gives the impression of something older, this is still fresh and tight on entry, with real focus, and very elegant with attrac... Read More

  • Tedeschi Monte Olmi Amarone 2008

    Snoothrank:

    High toned stemmy herbal notes greet the nose followed by a little black pepper, some grilled meats, fresh plum, sweet tobacco, and drying hay aromas. Downright velvety on entry, lush with ripeness underpinned with some fine grained tannins. The dark fruit is a bit blueberry toned at first then shows flashes of currants and dried cherries in al...

  • Speri Amarone 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Deep, complex, and masculine, if a bit oaky at first, though air brings out huge mineral notes with elegant floral high tones layered over a core of black cherry fruit with a little prune accent. On entry this is muscular and sinewy, tightly packed with fine grained tannins and big cherry fruit followed by layered mineral and oak notes. This is ... Read More

  • Masi Amarone Mazzano 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Smokey and soil driven on the nose, though this remains a bit reticent in the glass. On the palate this wraps itself around your tongue and pulls. A touch tough, rich, chewy and powerfully built it leads off with deep flavors of dried fruits and flowers before changing gears on the midpalate where it turns all chiseled and firm. Dry, firm and vi... Read More

  • Tommaso Bussola Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Vigneto Alto Tb 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Super meaty on the nose with a spicy note that recalls freshly grated ginger along with notes of leather and a vegemite earthiness. In the mouth this is richer than the 08, smooth and more pliant and obviously fruity with spicy dried fruit character and less minerality. A bit more drying tannin is wrapped in the dark dried fruits that feature a... Read More

  • Tommaso Bussola Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Meaty, leathery, and spicy on the nose with big dried cherry fruit. while showing some wood in the mouth this remains smooth and polished, and attractively a little light bodied, if rich with alcohol. Attractive flavors of candied bitter cherry fruit are rather refined with a dusty mineral note and good length. Large scaled and elegant is ultim... Read More

  • Is it still good from 199? It tasted overly sweet, and I am wondering if it has gone bad.
