2017 Speri Vigneto Monte Sant'Urbano, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG, Italy (750ml)
A floral Amarone that shows lavender, violets, orange peel, citrus and vanilla. Very round, mouth-filling and flavorful. So juicy and spicy throughout. From organically grown grapes.
-James Suckling, 93 pts
From one of the best vintages in recent Valpolicella memory, the 2015 Valpolicella Classico Superiore Sant'Urbano is a dark, penetrating and exuberant wine with a beautiful quality of smooth and concentrated fruit. The blend is composed of 75% Corvina Veronese and Corvinone, 20% Rondinella and 5% Molinara. This more-sophisticated wine also sees a 25-day appassimento process. It offers nice textural richness with soft tannins and dense fruit flavors.
-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 91 pts
A deep garnet red in color, it has an ethereal bouquet of dried fruit. On the palate, it is full-bodied, warm, mouth-filling and dry. A substantial wine of rare elegance that lends itself well to ageing.
Excellent with richly flavored main courses based on red meat, such as braised meats and game,and perfect with mature cheeses. It can also be enjoyed on its own at the end of a fine dinner.
