Wine Advocate Review
The 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico sees four months of appassimento, and the blend is 70% Corvina and Corvinone, followed by 30% Croatina, Rondinella and Oseleta. Add in the 30 months of aging between barrique and botte grande and you get so much plush and ripe black fruit here, with spice, tar, cured tobacco and new leather. The moderate residual sugar adds to the wine's thick volume and softness, making it a nice pairing with a rich liver dish such as the local fegato alla Veneziana. Drink 2019-2030.
The color is a dark ruby red. The bouquet is intense and highly developed with notes of dry herbs, prunes and cherries. The palate is full-bodied with a velvety, warm mouthfeel; long finish.
