Le Salette Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico la Marega 2012

Member Review by Dafoxman:

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.

Sleek and silky, offering black cherry coulis and dried cranberry fruit notes, with supple tannins and accents of star anise, gumdrop, dried rosemary and sage that linger on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2023.

Yet another gorgeous expression, the 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico La Marega takes a traditional approach, with 60% of the oak aging in botte grande and 40% in barrique. The elegance of the fruit comes though, as does the chewy intensity of the appassimento. Dark cola, mesquite, leather, resin, road asphalt, prune, raisin and cigar box fall seamlessly in line. The mouthfeel is richly textured and bold. Drink 2016–2028.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewLe Salette, run by a cheerful husband and wife team, hits all the right marks. What makes this wine special is its vibrant, tonic personality backed by brilliant ruby coloring, bright cherry-apple aromas and a polished, streamlined finish, achieved by 10% Sangiovese. Its a benchmark Amarone and one that grooves seamlessly with meat, risotto and cheese based pasta.
