Price: $21.99

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. more info

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. more info

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. more info

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. more info

Juicy red and blue fruits dance with Christmas cake, melted chocolate, forest floor and spice in this nicely structured, classically styled ’12 Amarone Classico. Complementing its sweet fruits with savory truffle and earth, this wine delights in its opposites, and its velvety mouth-feel swaddles the palate with pleasure. A terrific value alternative to Quintarelli, Dal Forno and Bussola, this Amarone is a blend of 65% Corvina, 30% Rondinella, and the remainder indigenous Veneto grapes. After drying in boxes for about three months, the grapes macerate in temperature-controlled stainless steel, then age for about three-and-a-half years in botti and tonneaux, followed by six months in bottle before release.

Dense, intense and muscular, Brigaldera’s ’13 Amarone exudes luscious blue fruits, crisp cassis, raspberry jam, Christmas cake, melted chocolate, candied violets, smoke, cigar wrapper, and new leather in an intoxicating, seductive perfume.
