Price: $18.99

Rustic, elegant and food-friendly, this ’17 Valpolicella Classico explodes from the glass with a shower of dark fruits, bright cherries, warm leather, violet petals, and spicy cigar wrapper. This detailed wine unfolds on the palate to reveal a seamless balance of sweet fruits, chewy tannins, and electric acidity--it’s a juicy delight that calls for meals of hard cheeses, grilled meats, tomato-based pastas, or pizza! A blend of 55% Corvinone, 25% Corvina, and 20%, Rondinella deriving from vines planted in the 1970s and 1980s, the wine ferments and ages in temperature-controlled stainless steel.

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.
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.
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.
Nicolis Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2008 750ml
Nicolis Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2008 750ml
Price: $69.99
Currently Unavailable.

Aromas of cherry cordial, wildflowers cigar wrapper, and brown spices explode from the glass in this ’08 Amarone, offering a bewitching preview of the brooding, complex palate. This deceptively dry, tantalizing ’08 coats the mouth with velvety tannins, conveying its myriad notes of cherry cola, Christmas spices, umami, earth, herbs, cigar wrapper--and more. Nicolis, a small family-owned-and-operated producer, crafts only 700 cases of this wine, and just a handful of cases of this affordable Amarone arrive in the US. Hefty, elegant, and smooth, this classic Amarone is still very young; while approachable now, time will tame its chewy, dense tannins and elicit even more complexity.
Brigaldara Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2013 750ml
Brigaldara Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2013 750ml
Price: $75.99

Dense, intense and muscular, Brigaldera’s ’13 Amarone offers fistfuls of luscious blue fruits that are accented with cassis, Christmas cake, melted chocolate, candied violets, smoke, and leather. At first sip, this wine seems as if it will be sweet, but the bold fruits mellow and meld with the wine’s smoky minerality; a hefty alcohol level finds its match in electric acidity, and the dry finish glides to a lingering, herbaceous end. A blend of 50% Corvinone, 20% Corvina, 20%, Rondinella, and 10% assorted grapes deriving from vines planted in 1994, grapes partially dry before fermentation, and the wine ages for three years in a combination of barrique and barrels.
Giuseppe Quintarelli Valpolicella 2010 750ml
Giuseppe Quintarelli Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2010 750ml
Price: $92.99
Currently Unavailable.

Juicy red and blue fruits cavort with warm baking spices, violet petals, underbrush, pressed herbs, and cherry liqueur in this captivating, balanced ’10 Valpolicella. Fine-grained tannins cling to the cheeks as this supple wine crosses the palate, releasing a sweet inner perfume and building to a mineral-laden and altogether symphonic finish. Crafted from a mélange of indigenous Veneto grape varietals chosen with Quintarelli’s legendarily strict grape selection, grapes dry for two months in the appassimento technique before pressing and fermentation. This wine ages for seven years in Slavonian oak botti before bottling, a protocol unheard of in the region but one the estate maintains to create nuanced and structured, complex Valpolicella with some appropriate maturity. An opportunity to experience Quintarelli magic at a fraction of the price of the estate's Amarone, this Valpolicella is a true “baby Amarone.”
Brigaldara Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2005 1.5L
Brigaldara Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2005 1.5L
Price: $179.00

Melted chocolate, cigar wrapper, Christmas spices, potpourri, and minerals frame the juicy cherries and plums in this caressing, energetic ’05 Amarone. This wine balances its fruits with savory earth, its fresh acidity with copious dry extract, its fine-grained tannins with subtle sweet perfume, and wraps it all in a mineral-laden finish that lingers satisfyingly. A blend of 50% Corvinone, 20% Corvina, 20%, Rondinella, and 10% assorted grapes deriving from vines planted in 1994, grapes partially dry before fermentation, and the wine ages for three years in a combination of barrique and barrels.

Quintarelli Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2001 750ml
Quintarelli Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2001 750ml
Price: $400.00

Juicy dark fruits, bramby berries, and succulent cherries cavort on a bed of licorice, potpourri, saddle leather, incense and sweet baking spices in this supple, superb '01 Recioto. While this wine suffuses your mouth with flavors and textures, it's nonetheless remarkably nimble; there's nothing weighty about this silky, outrageously good dessert wine--it's a knockout! Quintarelli saw the challenge of making a Recioto as a labor of love; rarely produced, this bottling appears three to four times a decade because it requires thirty pounds of grapes and ten years of production to create one standard bottle. Quintarelli's hands-on selection and relentless patience in aging its Recioto separates it from others, and this sweet Recioto may just be the estate’s most age-worthy and rare find. Quintarelli typically produces fewer than 300 cases in the years that the estate makes the wine.
