Speri Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore DOC 2019

Speri tends to keep things fresh and energetic. The last one I had was a 2010 Amarone mag, divine! The Ripasso is an excellent intro to their wines, a baby Amarone. This is packed tight with a concentrated, silky bead of ripe red berries and red cherries that drives through the palate, until fine, quite firm tannins block its path right at the end. Medium-bodied, but the concentration of fruit makes it feel heavier. Lots of energy here, but balance, too. Delicious now. Even better after a

Gini Soave ‘La Froscà’ 2018

"A vivid display of wet stone, kiwi, apricots and smoky minerals lifts up from the 2018 Soave Classico La Froscà. It’s silky and pliant upon entry, yet it quickly gains energetic thrust through a mix of zesty acids and salty minerals. The palate literally buzzes with residual tension, as a tart note of Granny Smith apple completes the expression perfectly. This is simply stunning today, and it’s worth cellaring over the medium term as well." Eric Guido, Vinous

Pieropan Soave ‘Calvarino’ 2019

The name 'Calvarino' translates to 'small ordeal'. Tank ferment fresh & energetic. Unlike unwooded Chardonnay (WTF?? Just NO!), this works brilliantly. It's more akin to having a largely tank fermented Viognier from Condrieu, no puppy fat & just delicious.

Pieropan Soave ‘La Rocca’ 2019

Given the full beans, barrel fermentation & maturation, the fruit from this site just laps it up This is stunning. Balancing freshness and energy with cask ageing. Richness with fine acid, incredible complexity that builds in the glass. Tasting this wine, I find it giving me as much pleasure as white burgundy at three times the price! It caresses your tongue, finishing with incredible length.

Speri Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG ‘Monte Sant’Urbano’ HALF 2016

Speri make Amarone of great sophistication, the trademarks of the appassimento technique are there, Speri keep things fresh and energetic. The last one I had was a 2010 mag, divine! Guido's note below is true to form. The 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Sant'Urbano takes some time to blossom in the glass, as mineral-tinged blackberry evolves into a display of currants and cherries complemented by hints of sweet mint, lavender and violets. It’s velvety in texture and savory to t

Monte Roncá Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico 2017

This is a very interesting wine. A young Amarone, by no means an inexperienced one. Despite its 16% alcohol you don’t see it and if you think really hard just feel it. It sits toward the finer end of the Amarone spectrum. Precise and vital. Modest tannin weight has a sufficient mid-palate hit to balance fresh fruits and a fine line of acid. The perceived sweetness from fruit drying so obvious in many an Amarone is a faint complexing character here. Thisis very well played. Given time this will

Gini ‘Scajari’ Riserva Amarone 2010

'The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva Scajari lifts up with a refined display of black cherries, lavender and white smoke. With coaxing, it blossoms further, adding depths of exotic spice and purple-tinged flowers. It’s silky and pure with a savory display of pure red fruits and inner herbal tones, as cooling minerality collects toward the close. There’s wonderful symmetry here, tapering off remarkably fresh yet also with a coating of fine tannins, which should carry the Scajari for a
