JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, August 8, 2022
Lifted balsamic character to the baked blackberries, hot stones, dark cherries, black walnuts and dark chocolate here. Juicy and silky on the palate, with a svelte mid-palate that follows through to a generous, bittersweet finish. Drink now.

A vibrant Amarone, with light, taut tannins and lively acidity married to a fine range of black cherry coulis, dark chocolate shavings, iron and espresso notes. The chewy finish shows fragrant herbs and graphite character. Corvina, Rondinella, Croatina and Molinara. Drink now through 2029. 1,500 cases made, 1,000 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)

WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2023
Dense and concentrated aromas of blackberry compote, macerated plums with star anise, cocoa dust and freshly turned earth stake their claim in the glass of this powerful wine. Youthful, this wine shows the upfront new oak notes and tannins, but the core of black fruit stands its ground and is supported by a mixture of savory herbs and dried violets on the finish. Drink 2025–2035. (Jeff Porter)

VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2022
The 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is spicy, with hints of sour citrus giving way to cocoa, dusty rose and cloves. This is silky with a noticeable sweetness that is balanced by bright acidity, as ripe red berries and plums wash across the palate. It leaves violet florals, creamy dark chocolate and a touch of spice while finishing long and lightly structured. The 2016 is so drinkable; but at 17% abv and 12.7 grams of residual sugar per liter, it’s a high-test Amarone, so enjoy it in moderation. (Eric Guido)
