Nicolis Valpolicella Classico 2014 750ml
Nicolis Valpolicella Classico 2014 750ml
Price: $19.99
Currently Unavailable.

Seductive scents of cherries and berries dance with eucalyptus, anise, black tea, cigar wrapper, and spice--this structured yet succulent Valpolicella practically grabs you by the ears and pulls you to the glass! Dark, juicy fruit mingles with earthy, smoky notes on the palate, where they’re joined by bitter almond and a hint of burned sugar, conveyed in a velvety palate that’s spiked with piquant acidity. A blend of 65% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, and the remainder Molinara, this wine ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel and ages in large barrels for a classic interpretation of Veneto terroir and traditional winemaking.
Begali Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso 2014 750ml
Begali Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso 2014 750ml
Price: $21.99
Currently Unavailable.

Fresh, complex, delicious and immediately enjoyable, this ’14 Valpolicella Ripasso layers its sweet red fruits with warm leather, loam, spices, espresso and a kiss of raisined fruits. Elegant and round, this artisanal wine is nonetheless vibrant; it’s a terrific exploration into its vintage and a great introduction to the family-run Begali estate. A Valpolicella Ripasso “passes” through the lees left from the estate’s Amarone, and this one from Begali (a blend of 65% Corvina, 30% Rondinella and the remainder other indigenous grapes) spends at least a year maturing in oak barrel, followed by time in the bottle before release.
Nicolis Valpolicella Superiore Seccal 2011 750ml
Nicolis Valpolicella Superiore Seccal 2011 750ml
Price: $24.99
Currently Unavailable.

This full-bodied, full-throttle Valpolicella whooshes across the palate like a swath of liquid silk. Offering notes of espresso, black cherry, earth, exotic spices and chocolate, this ’11 Valpolicella makes a strong contender for one of IWM’s favorite wines at its price point. This lush Valpolicella gets its extra oomph for being made with the ripasso method, where the wine re-ferments with the skins of the grapes used for Nicolis’ Amarone and Recioto wines, adding extract, color, flavor, density, and a touch of alcohol. Aged in botti for 16 months before being bottled, this wine is a perfect accompaniment to hearty fall and winter fare.
Brigaldara Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2016 750ml
Brigaldara Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2016 750ml
Price: $34.99

Lush red and brooding blue fruits mingle with melted chocolate, spice box, violet petals, vanilla and soil in Brigaldara’s delicious, bold ’16 Valpolicella Ripasso. The product of protocol that lets the fermenting Valpolicella juice “pass through” the estate’s Amarone grape must, this wine is surprisingly complex and elegant, layering its intense fruits with fine-grained, polished tannins and vibrant acidity--it’s a food-friendly beauty! A blend of 40% Corvina, 30% Corvinone 20% Rondinella and 10% other grape varietals, grapes ferment first in stainless steel vats, and then with the skins of the Amarone grapes for five days; then the wine ages in oak barrels.
Giuseppe Quintarelli Bianco Secco 2016 750ml
Giuseppe Quintarelli Bianco Secco 2016 750ml
Price: $44.99
Currently Unavailable.

Bursting with succulent exotic fruits and honeyed citrus, the ’16 Bianco Secco combines intensity with energy, layering its sweet notes with bitter almond and pressed herbs, and complementing its roundness with a sturdy acidic spine. Complex but accessible, this unexpected white is enjoyable upon release, and it’ll age nicely over the medium term. Though Quintarelli gained its fame with its red wines, especially its iconic Amarone, the estate also crafts a beautiful white, evocative of the Veneto. Stunning and blonde, Quintarelli’s value-conscious white, Bianco Secco, is a seductive blend of Garganega, Trebbiano Toscano, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Saorin deriving from 30-year-old vines grown in mineral-rich soils; grapes ferment in temperature-controlled tanks, and the wine ages in barrel.
Nicolis Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2012 750ml
Nicolis Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2012 750ml
Price: $49.99

Lush red and brambly blue fruits dance on a foundation of underbrush, peppery spices, warm tobacco, raspberry jam and touches of potpourri, cocoa and Christmas cake in this elegant, intense ’12 Amarone. As full bodied as this Amarone is, it feels supple and energetic, powering to a lingering finish marked by chewy tannins, umami undertones, and bold fruit. While you could enjoy this wine upon release, a few years in the cellar will mellow its component parts into a delicious, cohesive whole. A blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Croatina, grapes dry in small cases for three months before pressing and a slow fermentation period at low temperatures; and the wine ages for 30 months in medium-sized Slavonian oak casks, followed by eight months in bottle before release.

Price: $54.99
Currently Unavailable.

Juicy orchard fruit, fresh-cut herbs, a kiss of spice--and that inimitable Quintarelli magic--conspire to make this Bianco Secco gorgeous. Cool, rainy, and fussy, 2013 saw plenty challenges, but Quintarelli rose to them in creating a classic, restrained and linear Bianco Secco bottling that makes a perfect complement to the fleshy 2012. Though Quintarelli gained the love of the wine world with his red wines, especially his iconic Amarone, the estate also crafts a beautiful white, evocative of the Veneto. Stunning and blonde, Quintarelli’s value-conscious white, Bianco Secco, is a seductive blend of Garganega, Trebbiano Toscano, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Saorin. This pretty, complex wine carries a bouquet of flowers, a fresh yet lush palate, and a finish of minerals and honey.
Begali Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2011 500ml
Begali Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2011 500ml
Price: $54.99

A frankly voluptuous wine, this opulent dessert wine uses partially dried grapes, just as an Amarone does, to achieve its intense, palate-staining full body, but unlike an Amarone, it’s approachable early and it’s sweet. Dark and seductive, Begali Recioto della Valpolicella Classico offers a bounty of juicy plums, brambly blackberries and sweet figs, all laid upon an herbal-inflected bed of cinnamon, star anise and sandalwood. Velvety and rich, yet spiked with tongue-piquing acidity, this luxurious wine is made for slow sipping, accompanied by cheese, chocolate or pastry. A blend of 65% Corvina, 30% Rondinella and the remainder other indigenous grapes, this wine spends a year in barrel, followed by at least six months in bottle before release.

Giuseppe Quintarelli Primofiore 2012 750ml
Price: $59.99
Currently Unavailable.

A ripe, low-production vintage in the Veneto, 2012 gave the Quintarelli estate limited but very healthy berries for its wines; this expressive, satisfying, weighty and accessible Primofiore embodies the velvetiness and opulence of the year. Juicy, succulent red and black fruits dance with notes of cola, cigar wrapper, spice, dried rose petals, and fruit compote in this elegant, rich wine. Full-bodied and voluptuous, the estate’s Primofiore is a blend of 50% Corvina, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc, which all finish ripening in wooden boxes before fermentation and aging in Slovenian oak. Primofiore, which means “first press,” gets the runoff juice of the first-run Amarone, adding depth and complexity. The rich ’12 Primofiore allows enthusiasts a first taste of this banner vintage.
