"Produced in our Costalunga Estate, in the Classical area of Valpolicella, a land full of tradition and well known for its wine and food culture, after a careful manual selection, the Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta grapes are left to rest in small boxes and then gently pressed to create a wine of undoubted quality with great complexity that gets better with age. Deep ruby red, acquiring touches of garnet with age. The nose is elegant, warm, spicy, with hints of black cherry, dried fruit, and prunes in particular. Round, velvety and smooth." —winemaker
"Aromas of dried meats, dried fruits and dried flowers follow through to a full body, juicy tannins and a ripe-fruit finish. Very soft and delicious. Drink now." —JamesSuckling.com

"There's lovely balance to this creamy Amarone, with delicate spice and orange zest accents enlivening the flavors of black cherry puree, dried lavender, date and mineral. Well-knit tannins provide a supple frame. A crowd-pleaser. Drink now through 2026. 2,600 cases imported." —Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator

"Aromas of black currant, blue flower, tilled soil, menthol and cedar take center stage. The dense palate delivers mature black cherry, crushed raspberry, mocha, vanilla, nutmeg and a confectionery note. Velvety tannins provide the framework. Drink through 2022." —Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
