Amarone della Valpolicella Campo dei Gigli 2016
95/100 pt | “A unique yet beguiling mix of smoked meats, lavender and violets evolves into dusty black berries an currants as the 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Campo dei Gigli blossoms in the glass. It’s velvety-smooth yet spicy and mineral in style, with penetrating dark red fruits giving way to dark chocolate, balsam herbs and building tannins. This tapers off remarkably long and primary, yet it maintains amazing freshness, leaving exotic inner florals and spices to linger. The 2016 is a gentle giant of an Amarone that will need a little time to show its best. It spent three years refining in neutral Tonneaux.”
Amarone della Valpolicella Selezione – Antonio Castagnedi 2017
94/100 pt | “The 2017 Amarone della Valpolicella Selezione Antonio Castagnedi is dusty and floral, with black cherries lifted by smoky crushed stone. This impresses further with undeniably elegant textures, silky and refined, more savory than sweet and with a saturation of primary fruits. Plums, blackberries, minerals and brown spice can all be found, as the 2017 comes across as powerful and elegant. This is a tamed beast of an Amarone with depths of intensity and full of character as it tapers off balsamic, lightly structured an spicy. Wow and at a balanced 15% abv.”
Valpolicella Superiore La Bandina 2018
93/100 pt | “The 2018 Valpolicella Superiore La Bandina wafts up with sour cherry, dusty roses and a captivating hint of animal musk. This is silky and elegant, with an intense mineral core that mixes with brisk acids that add incredible freshness. That textbook salty character that Tenuta Sant’Antonio captures is here in spades as plum and hints of cocoa give way to a long and lightly structured finish with sweet tannins. This is wonderfully fresh and long.”
Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Monti Garbi 2019
92/100 pt | “Ashen soil and smoke gives way to dusty black cherries and savory herbs as the 2019 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Monti Garbi opens in the glass. This is savory and velvety in feel, mixing salty and sweet in its blend of black cherries and exotic spice. The result is actually remarkably fresh, while also drenching the palate in primary fruit and leaving a lightly structured sensation. The 2019 is a big wine, but remarkably balanced.”
Valpolicella Nanfrè 2020
89/100 pt | ”A smoky mix of raspberry preserves, sage and freshly cracked pepper waft up from the 2020 Valpolicella Nanfrè. This is silky in texture and decidedly savory, repleting the pepper notes from the bouquet that mix with salty minerals and brisk acids, yet I’m craving more freshness. It finishes long and staining, only lightly structured with hints of licorice.”
