Le Ragose Amarone Marta Galli 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

In tonneaux Woody on the nose and spicy with paprika, black currant, spicy green leaves, and strawberry top aromas. there’s a sweetness of wood early on the palate, which is large scaled and typical of high end Amarone. Rich with dark fruit that is a bit extracted and deeply flavored with candied cherry notes and hint of black plum. This is a bit chewy with lots of fruit tannins and plenty of chocolate nuance in the mouth, though the finish is a bit short. The nose is beautiful, I wish that the palate showed more detail and complexity. 88pts

Le Ragose is located in the town of Negrar on the historic hills of Valpolicella. After years of lying abandoned, the 70 acre estate was in 1969 by Arnaldo Galli, an enologist, and his wife Marta Bortoletto. Together with their children, Paolo and Marco, they have striven to respect the traditions of this ancient zone while carefully introducing modern technology both in the vineyard and in the cellars. They have been slowly increasing the types of varietals they plant with the precise scope of improving the sector of the "classic" wines and, at the same time, satisfying the evolving and changing tastes of the consumer … Today there are 40 acres of vineyard which lie above the notorious winter fogs. The terrain is particularly suited for vine growing and the climate is idea for the "appassimento" (drying) of the grapes. The Galli family is involved in all phases of the production from the vineyard to the marketing of the finished wines. Their wines, which have drawn much attention in the press, are produced exclusively by the grapes grown at Le Ragose and always with the focus on quality and not on quantity. … Today there are 40 acres of vineyard which lie above the notorious winter fogs.
