Dark cherries, blackberries, mussels, licorice, figs and some finely ground black chocolate, following through to a medium-to full-bodied palate with elegant berries and a bittersweet black-chocolate note. A refined, textbook Amarone that shows great poise and modern drinkability. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)

There’s an exotic flair to the 2018 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Sant’Urbano as foreign spices, dusty dried roses, red currants and blood orange hints form its bouquet. This is supple and enveloping with stimulating acidity that adds an energetic feel, as tart cherry and raspberry fruits drench the palate. Its minerality comes through in the finish, almost salty in character as grippy tannins saturate, yet the wine remains amazingly fresh. The 2018 is wonderfully balanced and potent, a total success for the vintage. (Eric Guido)

A dark, rich Valpolicella, exuding steeped blackberry, date, ashy smoke and fragrant accents of violet, wild sage and warm brown bread. Medium-bodied and creamy, with supple tannins and a touch of coffee liqueur on the finish. Distinctive. Drink now through 2028. 2,000 cases made. (Alison Napjus)

The 2018 Valpolicella Superiore Classico Ripasso Ca’ del Laito shows a bit of volatility on the nose as masses of spiced cherry give way to cloves and licorice. This washes across the palate, deeply textural and spicy, with ripe mineral-drench red and black fruits that saturate. Balsam herbs and exotic spices are left to linger, as the 2018 finishes with impressive length and lightly structured. (Eric Guido)

Very aromatic, pushing out aromas of dried red and black fruit, including dried blueberries and dates, together with a nice, spicy layer of nutmeg and pressed flowers. Full-bodied with an amazingly harmonious texture to the palate, thanks to the dense, very fine tannins that also provide super length. There’s a bright, saline mineral note that kicks in and pushes the finish even further. Exquisite Amarone. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)

The 2018 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico opens with an herbal thrust that gives way to dried violets, lavender and crushed blackberries. It is sleek and racy in feel with lifted textures and tart wild berry fruits offset by zesty acidity. It tapers off long and staining, lifted by a bump of residual acidity as notes of red plum leave a pleasantly tart sensation. I quite like the energy here and expect that the 2018 will enjoy a broad and open drinking window. (Eric Guido)

A harmonious version, round and medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins enmeshed with a fragrant mix of steeped cherry and strawberry, tea rose and tea leaf, mineral and spice flavors.

Ripe and crunchy blueberries and plums here, together with hints of chocolate, bark and walnuts. Medium-to full-bodied with a fine, chalky tannin structure and vivid acidity. Rich and intense, with delicious dark-fruit character and notes of wet leaves and spices to close. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2022
A medium- to full-bodied version, with aromas and flavors of baked black cherry, Grand Marnier liqueur, spice cake and eucalyptus that are rich and expressive. Shows juicy acidity and firm, fine tannins, with hints of dark chocolate and fresh earth on the finish. Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. Drink now through 2028. 2,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)

A fruity and quite racy red with some nice plum and ripe berry character. Medium-bodied with a straight-through feel until the slightly chewy tannin kicks in at the end. Drink now. (James Suckling)
