AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA VALPANTENA DOC

2013 Italy Veneto
92 Points

Underbrush, mature dark-skinned fruit, aromatic herb, menthol and baking spice aromas lead the nose on this full-bodied red.

AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA VALPANTENA DOC

Mix 36

2015 Italy Tuscany
92 Points

Lush, with toasty notes of new oak, this red evokes cherry, plum, spice and chocolate flavors. Displays power and a dense structure, with a long, spice- and tobacco-accented finish. The vibrant acidity imparts length, but the oak hides some of the fruit and purity. Give this the benefit of time. Sangiovese. Best from 2021 through 2033.  – B.S.
