Big points from top US wine guide VINOUS

Our current Amarone vintages have picked up some great scores and excellent write ups from Eric Guido, the man in charge of reviewing Veneto wines for leading US wine guide Vinous.

Eric awarded 94 points to CALCAROLE Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico 2013 describing it as ‘velvety-smooth and full bodied, yet it maintains perfect balance, blending ripe black fruits with exotic spices, mocha and purple inner florals’

VILLA RIZZARDI Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico 2013 was given 93 points and described it as ‘Powerful, concentrated and structured, this lingers on the palate for well over a minute. While ready to please today, the Villa Rizzardi will also excel through medium-term cellaring.

3CRU Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico 2015 which already won gold at Decanter was praised: ‘It’s deeply textural and soothing, enveloping the palate in ripe blackberries and plums with mineral underpinnings, feeling weighty but perfectly balanced’ and awarded 92 points.

 All three wines are available in limited quantities worldwide, if you want to track down a bottle and need help then let us know –
