  • Tedeschi Valpolicella Classico Superiore la Fabriseria 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Stemmy and spicy on the high toned and complex nose that shows some light medicinal shadings over fine floral accent notes with a leathery fruit base. Thick and a bit powerful for Valpolicella, this is built on a hard tannic base, and they are chewy tannins, though paired with fine acids that are covered by the rich fruit. With noticeable ste...

  • Le Ragose Valpolicella Superiore le Sassine 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Spicy on the nose, which is a little leafy, with curranty fruit and some paprika accents. Big and rich with wild raspberry and cherry fruit carrying faint shadings of chocolate on the palate. This is, bitterish, deep but transparent on the palate with fresh tannins, lively acids, fine minerality on the backend good length to the dark cherry rhub... Read More

  • Speri Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Gorgeous on the nose, all crushed fruit and flowers, and some low minty wild herbs slowly emerging with air. Delicate, juicy and simply vibrant on the palate with lovely purity to the flavors of crushed cherry fruit framed with violets and dried herb highlIghts ending with a firm, tart lingonberry jam note. Bracing and cleansing, with a fine as... Read More

  • Tommasi Viticoltori Valpolicella Classico Superiore Rafael 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Spicy on the nose, and redolent of small wild flowers wrapped around blue and black fruits. Supple and broad on the palate, this really reaches from side to side of the mouth with attractively aromatic blue floral inner mouth perfumes, a hint of something candied and minty and then a core of slightly wild plummy, extract of wild cherry fruit. T... Read More

  • Bussola Valpolicella Classico Superiore Tb 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Incense, mineral, black fruit skin, greet the nose, full, deep and precise, rich, a bit leathery, deep with fresh red and dried raisin and prune fruits. theres a hint of wood here and a suggestion of evolution as well. This is superbly aromatic in the mouth, big black fruit on the palate all laced with medicinal, and licorice notes leading to a ... Read More

  • To add to GDP, Valpolicella is not placed in oak barrels from what I have read.  Either way all three Valpolicella's are excellent.  Classico, Ripsso Superiore, or the King "Amarone is a fantiasitc addition to anyone's collection.  Read More

  • Le Ragose Corvina Blend Amarone Della Valpolicella 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The gorgeous nose, shows off brilliant aromas of sweet herbs, complex middle eastern spice, dried herb stem, and rose stems. Elegant and wide open in the mouth, there are lovely red fruit flavors here, redolent of raspberry juice, then tobacco, bitter wild cherries, and a little cinnamon add engaging complexity. Fine ripe tannins keep this livel... Read More
