Fine on the nose with well delineated aromas of minerals and dark fruit that is peppery with grilled meat notes. Polished and rich on the palate but with good clarity to the soft dried red fruit, red cherry flavors. The palate is firm with soft tannins, but this remains very easy to drink turning fairly complex on the back end with mineral driven flavors that lead to a clean, long and slightly grippy finish. Show a nice interplay of red fruit and minerality. 89pts

This is our most favourite wine ever. It is full bodied and spicy, yet smooth. It has a higher specific gravity, usually above 15%, but due to the way it is made this should be no surprise. I would always recommend this wine.

Deep, almost impenetrable, ruby red, with violet colored edges. Fruits of the forest, especially blueberries, on the nose, but licorice and vanilla, too. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, but soft and velvety at the same time. Excellent balance between tannins and acidity.

From one of Amarone’s premier producers, this delicious Amarone delivers generous black cherry flavors, with hints of raisin, white pepper, nutmeg and chocolate. It’s soft and round, with smooth, velvety tannins and compelling intensity.

Rich and earthy, with a note of forest floor, this tobacco-laced version is firm and structured. The fine texture carries a core of plum compote, coffee, treacle, date and licorice. Offers a lasting finish of grilled herbs. Drink now through 2024.

The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera is a richly layered Amarone that shows youthful energy and budding complexity despite the fact it is only at the beginning of its evolutionary course. Immediate layers of dried fruit and pressed blackberry peel back to reveal etched mineral tones, loads of tobacco, exotic spice and even a hint of bitter chocolate. Like many of the best Amarones on the market, this wine is distinguished by its exceptional mouthfeel: Softness, thickness, sweetness and dark concentration are among its best assets. Drink 2015–2024.

A modest version, framed by tangy acidity and light tannins. The earth and smoke elements mix with dried sour cherry and pomegranate notes. Drink now through 2018.

This is a landmark Amarone that has often acted as the category’s biggest ambassador abroad. It bursts open with aromas of dark berry, spice, leather and tobacco, and it is both generous and long-lasting on the palate.

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red color with violet tinges to the edges. Clean, very powerful and complex on the nose with good alcoholic backbone amid the sweet aromas of dried prunes and raisins. Soft and dry on the palate with typical baked cherry flavors mixed with hints of cocoa and cinnamon. Attractively long finishing and full-bodied with soft tannins.

<p>Made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara grapes, this Italian Amarone is a full-bodied wine which enhances the flavor of red meats, game, and sharp cheeses.</p>
