Le Salette La Marega Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2009 / 750 ml.

Item#: 73779

RP93+93+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2013
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.
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2013
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. 3,666 cases made.

Veneto, in northeastern Italy, is home to some of the most celebrated Italian wines, including Amarone red wines. The cities Verona and Venice fall within Veneto, and the areas surrounding Verona in western Veneto is where you'll find Amarone and Valpolicella production. Western Veneto also produces some fantastic white wines, like Soave. Meanwhile, the eastern part of Veneto has something worth celebrating, as well, as that's where Prosecco comes from.

RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Aug 2019
This wine is only made in the best vintages, and the next release is 2011. The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a mysteriously ephemeral wine but also a very powerful one at the same time. The alcohol content is 16.5%, and this is one of the most important indicators used when deciding that a vintage is good enough to make Amarone. This wine shows a deep, dark color that is reinforced by thick density and smoky aromas that lift from the glass, followed by exotic spice, campfire ash, camphor and plenty of dark plummy and raisiny fruit. The bouquet reveals outlying aromas of bitter chocolate and crushed slate. In the mouth, the wine offers plenty of ripeness and fruity sweetness, but there is enough supporting structure here to absorb both the sugar and the alcohol. There is a sweetly fragrant earthy note on the long and silky finish.
