93 PTS – James Suckling
"A red with dried fruits such as raisins and sultanas. Full-bodied, round and fruity. Soft, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Very classic style of Amarone. Drink now."

91 PTS – Wine Enthusiast
"Structured and savory, this opens with aromas of prune, baked plum and cake spice. The full-bodied palate doles out ripe black cherry, raisin, white pepper and mocha accompanied by round, chewy tannins. It closes on a licorice note."

90 PTS – Wine Spectator
"Elegant and balanced, with supple tannins framing the flavors of juicy black cherry, singed orange peel, wild herb and Christmas spice. Drink now through 2022."

Winemaker's Notes
After harvest, the grapes are placed on small racks in a large grape-drying room known as a fruttaio, where they are dried by cool autumn and winter breezes until the following February. Over these months the grapes lose about 50% of their weight, concentrating the level of natural sugar. After fermentation, the wine is aged for 30 months in large 35-hectoliter Slavonian oak casks, followed by one year in bottle.

he 2012 Amarone is a blend of 50% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta, from the family’s choicest plots in Valpolicella Classico. Their traditional approach to Amarone favors elegance and balance, with deep fruit complemented by spicy, earthy flavors.

Food pairing
Red meat, game, mature cheeses. Excellent after-dinner wine
