Accordini Amarone Classico Acinatico DOC 2014 (1x 75cl)

Deep garnet in the glass with an intense black cherry and vanilla bouquet. On the palate, it is full bodied, rich and creamy with smooth tannins. At 16% alcohol, it should really be a monster; in reality, it is fantastically balanced with a minerality which keeps it fresh and dangerously moreish.

£31.44

Accordini Valpolicella Classico Doc 2016 (1x75cl)

Intense ruby red with a bouquet of red cherries, spice and vanilla. Full bodied on the palate, warming, fruit-forward with juicy cherries and a floral twist.

£10.90

Accordini Valpolicella Classico Ripasso Acinatico Doc 2015 (1x75cl)

Intense ruby red with a bouquet of red cherries, spice and vanilla. Full bodied on the palate, warming, fruit-forward with juicy cherries and a floral twist.

Allegrini Palazzo Della Torre Igt 2014 (1x75cl)

Deep ruby red in colour, with perfumes of cherry and black forest gateau. This wine has good body and an ageing potential of at least ten years. It has a smooth and velvety character, with mature, pulpy fruit character and delicious raisin flavours.

£17.55

Alpha Zeta `R` Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso 2015 (1x75cl)

Ruby red in colour, with a concentrated perfume of red and black cherries, with the ripasso adding a dried cherry intensity. Full-bodied on the palate, with lovely balance between opulent cherry-pie character and supple structure.  Good length with a mouthwatering bitter-cherry twist on the finish.  

£13.20

Alpha Zeta V Valpolicella 2016 (1x75cl)

Nice depth of youthful colour, with perfumes of fresh black cherries. On the palate the wine is soft, ripe and rounded, with an attractive freshness which lifts the cherry compote flavours and accentuates its perfume.

£9.65

Bertani Bardolino Doc Le Nogare 2016 (1x75cl)

Smart nose with some cherry fruit and light dusting of spice. On the palate the wine is light, well balanced with more cherry notes and a savoury finish.

£13.53

Castelforte Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso 2014 (1x 75cl)

A dry, full-bodied red has an inviting nose of ripe cherries, vanilla and cloves from the oak ageing. The palate is ripe and fruity with soft tannins and a satisfying finish.

£13.30

Cortegiara Bardolino 2016 (1x 75cl)

Attractive ruby colour and a lively, fresh nose with perfumes of ripe cherries and blueberries, more aromatic and delicate than the previous vintage.  On the palate it is youthful and exuberant, with a fresh, juicy fruit character and light, soft tannins.  Very drinkable, fresh lively style. 

£10.10

Guerrieri Rizzardi 3 Cru Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2012 (1x 75cl)

Guerrieri Rizzardi 3 Cru Amarone 2012 - August 2017 DWWA17 review

It's on our Christmas List because ... it was recently awarded Best Amarone by Decanter in the 2017 DWWAs and is quite delicious.  Think velvet with soft tannins and ripe black fruits - perfect for warming up during the festive season! There are also a couple of other high-scoring Amarones from Alpha Zeta and La Giuva at the bottom of the page. If your budget doesn't quite stretch to genuine Amarone, try the Southern Italian passito-method Ca'Vittoria Appassimento Gold Release for just over a tenner, which is stunning in its own right.

Selected grapes from the three Cru vineyards (Calcarole, Pojega & Rovereti) make up the wine (hence the name). Barrels normally destined for the famed Calcarole and Villa Rizzardi wines - which were not bottled in 2012 - take up the majority of the blend. Grapes come from the 5-hectare, steep, rocky, terraced hillside vineyard of Calcarole as well as the gently sloping clay vineyards of Rovereti and Pojega in the heart of Negrar, the most celebrated of the communes in Valpolicella. Vine age is up to 36 years old.

Made from 100% dried grapes, that have been raisined in the drying room for 3½ months. Long, slow fermentation of one month (25°C - 30°C) followed by malolactic fermentation in oak. Maturation is 12 months in 2.25 hl oak barrels and 24 months in 25 hl oak barrels. Production is limited to 50,000 bottles.

The wine is a blend of 80% Corvina & Corvinone, 10% Rondinella and 10% Barbera.

Aromatic with ripe dark berried fruit alongside sweet spice, a ripe, rich style. The texture to is rich and round with abundant, ripe, dark berried fruit supported by fine oak. Well structured and maintaining good freshness, decant an hour before serving.

£25.95

Pieropan `Ruberpan` Valpolicella 2014 (1x 75cl)

Brilliant ruby red in colour.  The bouquet is full of typical cherry and strawberry fruit. The palate continues with complex layers of beautiful fruit notes and finishes with a spicy character. This quality wine has the potential to age well.
