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!

Nicolis Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2012 750ml
Nicolis Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2012 750ml
Price: $49.99
Currently Unavailable.

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
Begali Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2011 500ml
Begali Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2011 500ml
Price: $54.99
Currently Unavailable.

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
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. more info
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 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. At first sip, this opulent wine seems as if it will be sweet, but the bold fruits mellow and meld with the Amarone’s smoky minerality; a hefty alcohol level finds its match in electric acidity, and the dry finish glides to a lingering, herbaceous end. Enjoyable now with liberal decanting, this Amarone will drink for years, even decades. 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. more info
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.” more info

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. more info
Giuseppe Quintarelli Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2004 375ml
Giuseppe Quintarelli Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2004 375ml
Price: $199.00

Arguably Italy's greatest sweet red wine, Quintarelli Recioto is one of IWM's fastest-selling dessert wines; the 2004 saw a benchmark vintage for the Veneto, and this Recioto vintage is a decadent delight that doesn’t sacrifice detail for power. Quintarelli’s '04 Recioto reflects its ideal growing season in its kaleidoscopic layers, velvety texture, and mind-blowing complexity. This wine layers its sweet black cherries and juicy figs with mentholated herbs, Christmas spices, roasted coffee, worn leather, and dark chocolate in a Port-like palate that marries lively acidity with intense dry extract. Velvety tannins provide a sensual backdrop, while savory earthy notes complement the wine’s sweet fruits into its lingering, extended finish. Rarely produced, this bottling appears only three to four times a decade because it requires thirty pounds of grapes (it’s a blend of mostly Corvina and Corvinone, with Rondinella, Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, Croatina, and Sangiovese) and at least ten years of aging to create one standard bottle. This hedonistic drink will recalibrate everything you thought you knew about dessert wine. more info
