Montechiara Prosecco DOC $9.99
Wine Enthusiast: "Here’s a Prosecco Brut with a fuller, more generous personality that comes across in the form of peach, nectarine and grapefruit aromas. The wine has a light, golden color and offers frothy cream backed by a tight citrus finish." (7/2009) K&L Notes: San Venanzio has won many awards over the years. At K&L they get the coveted "Guido" award two thumbs up and three stars for value. On the nose, there are generous notes of apples, peaches, tropical fruits and pear blossom. It’s wonderfully balanced and elegant, with a pleasurable spiciness. The palate is rich and creamy,... Read More »
A blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, this Valpolicella is ruby-red and super silky in texture, with the quintessential chocolate-covered cherry quality you'd expect from good Valpolicella.
This sparkling white wine was obtained, as you might guess by the name, from the Prosecco grape using the Charmat method in autoclave. It is the epitome of prosecco, where the harmony of its elegant body is accompanied by a delicate bouquet. The freshness and fragrance of this wine, together with a fine and persistent perlage, make it ideal for any occasion. And the price doesn't hurt either! Serve at a cooler temperature than most whites, and watch bottle after bottle disappear at your next party.
Remo Farina's Bianco di Custoza is a blend of aromatic white grapes from the Moreniche hills, southeast of Lake Garda in Veneto. The blend of 40% Garganega, 25% Trebbiano, 15% Fernanda, 20% Malvasia are grown in calcareous clay soils. The wine is vinified entirely in stainless steel to maintain its fresh, bright, and aromatic profile. Notes of peach and white flowers reverberate on an easy-going palate that is perfect as an aperitif or with light dishes and fish.
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One step up in sophistication and pedigree compared to the base Campofiorin is the 2010 Brolo Campofiorin Oro. The base Campofiorin is great for sitting by the fireplace with family and friends, but this is a wine of extra caliber for dinner parties and elegant company. The bouquet is tightly woven with threads of dark fruit, spice, tobacco and cola. The wine shows a thicker, more elaborate level of extraction in the mouth. It tastes more like an Amarone than a Ripasso. (ML)" (12/2014) Wine Spectator: "Though elegant overall, the supple tannins lend weight and structure to ...Read More »
The Castelcerino vineyard is planted on predominantly volcanic soil, giving a distinct minerality to the 100% Garganega fruit.
Wine Enthusiast: "Talc powder and white pepper appear at first and the bouquet opens to include additional layers of citrus and stone fruit. The perlage is sharp and toned." (8/2013) K&L Notes: A direct buy makes this Brut level Prosecco a no-brainer, and quality conscious winemaking (several secondary fermentations take place per year to ensure freshness) makes it a pretty delicious choice as well. Stock up for parties! Four bottles per case.
The Bronca sisters grow their own fruit in steep hillside vineyards, then make base wine and perform the secondary (sparkling) fermentation on non-vintage batches three or four times a year, to ensure freshness. Low yields and hillside-grown fruit ensures that the wine has good concentration and acidity. This one's a clean, crisp and ultimately refreshing sparkler that is one of our favorites.
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The non-vintage Prosecco del Valdobiaddene Particella 68 comes from a hillside vineyard planted with 40-60-year-old Glera vines in rocky soils. It reveals more minerality along with honeyed grapefruit and apple-like fruit. Crisp and light-bodied with more intensity and flavor than its sibling, it is a dry sparkler to enjoy over the next 1-2 years." (6/2014)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright straw-green. Sexy, clean aromas of floral white peach, apricot and tangerine. On the palate, soft citrus and pineapple flavors are enlivened by vibrant acidity and nicely extended on the creamy, ...Read More »

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the estate’s two flagship wines, the 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico "Crosara de le Strie" is a richly textured and intense wine with firm tannins and sweet cherry accents. It is aged two years in barrique and botte grande and has the spicy endnotes of cinnamon and dark vanilla that come with barrel-aging. The best quality here is the wine’s immediate focus. (ML)" (10/2013) Decanter: "Volatile aromas of intense plum jam, cherry, cassis, dark spice, oak, prunes and chocolate. Big, full, ripe and sweet with youthful fruit and a spicy finish. It has a go ...Read More »

From the winemaker: "This wine is the product of the fermentation of Valpolicella Classico on the pressed grapes of Recioto and Amarone that are still full of sweet wine. The result is a high quality long lasting wine with strong and decisive characteristics and an intense bouquet of cherries and plums."
This classic blend of 40% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella and 20% other grapes, including Molinara, Dindarella and Croatina from Valpolicella. A low-alcohol red, as the winery describes it: "Its deep ruby red colour, the fruity flavour that reminds us of cherries, wild cherries and plums, its pleasant sapid and harmonious taste, gives us the opportunity of defining this wine as being modern, youthful and ready to drink."
The finest wine in the stable at Corte Rugolin, the Monte Danieli Amarone is sourced from a 60 year old vineyard with excellent sun exposure. It is comprised of 55% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 5% Rondinella, and a balance of the other local varieties of Olinara, Dindarellla, Oseleta, and Croatina. Harvest began in September and the grapes were loaded onto special racks where they were allowed to dry at room temperature in a ventilated room for three months. This process reduced the original weight of the grapes by 35-40% via dehydration, and in turn concentr... Read More »
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An outstanding effort is the 1997 Palazzo della Torre. This dark ruby/purple-colored wine is full-bodied, dense, with Rhone-like beef blood and garrigue (that blend of earth and dried Provencal herbs) scents intertwined with copious quantities of black cherry and currant fruit. Rich, chewy, and impressive, it was aged in large 2,000 and 8,000 liter Slavonian wood foudres." (8/2000)
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is 70% Covina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Molinara. This classic Amarone blend is carefully studied to bring optimal appassimento results, with bold intensity, good structure and characteristic aromas of dried fruit and spice. Velveteen texture marks the finish. Drink 2014-2020. (ML)" (10/2013) K&L Notes: Massimino Venturini's Valpolicella is a classic of the style. Made from Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella. Dry, aromatic and balanced, with cocoa, cherry and a hint of almond skin.
92 points Antonio Galloni: "Trabucchi's 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella explodes from the glass. Black cherry, tar, incense, smoke and licorice notes all take shape as this big, broad-shouldered wine shows off its personality. Another year or two in bottle should help the 2006 come together even more fully, but it is likely to remain a fairly powerful, hulking Amarone. Still, there is a lot to look forward to here." (3/2014)91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark, thick and syrupy, this savory Amarone delivers notes of Indian spice, Teriyaki, molasses, plum and dark berry fruit. It has a noticeably sweet finish with ...Read More »
Wine Spectator: "Balanced, featuring a core of black cherry, aromatic herb, crème de cassis and wild strawberry fruit, with hints of gumdrop and smoke. Fresh. (Web-2013)" K&L Notes: Verona is a city with history, culture and excitement all wrapped into one. The province of Veneto, in fact, is surrounded by attractions and theme parks, to meet the desires of all, couples, families and groups of friends. We say this because if you like this wine, you can stay at the property. Musella is an historic estate on the northeast outskirts of Verona, just 15 minutes drive from the centre. Hugh... Read More »
Wine Enthusiast: "Small percentages of Croatina, Oseleta and Forsellina grapes are added to this traditional Valpolicella blend. It’s bright and fruity, with cherry and blueberry notes that are backed by a touch of smooth spice and a polished finish." (11/2012) K&L Notes: According to the Wine Advocate: "Trabucchi makes intense, fruit-forward wines from biologically-certified vineyards in Illasi, one of the valleys that emerges on the eastern side of the Valpolicella zone." (10/2009)
A Premier Cru Classé Pomerol from the Veneto? It may sound strange, but that is exactly what the folks from Vignalta had in mind when they set out to make their top wine, the Gemola. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, aged in French and American barriques (a mix of oldish and new), this wine is anything but typical. The Gemola is made in a flashy, new-world style, but with plenty of grip and complexity to make it practically irresistible even for staunch traditionalists. In truth, both Merlot and Cabernet Franc have been grown in the Colli Euganei for... Read More »
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Allegrini’s 2003 Amarone Classico (80% Corvina, 15% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta) reveals a super-opulent, engaging texture packed with sweet cocoa, dark fruit, cassis, blackberries, roasted coffee beans and licorice. It finishes with notable length and surprising finish for the vintage. According to Allegrini the rain that fell in July was critical in maintaining some balance in the wine. This medium to full-bodied wine is an outstanding example of a more restrained, clean style of Amarone." (10/2007)90 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and raisiny on the nose, with floral and mineral notes. ...Read More »
Wine Enthusiast: "Here’s a cheerful Prosecco Brut (in bright green packaging) with distant aromas of stone fruit, melon, kiwi and white stone. It offers creamy foam and a soft approach on the palate followed by lively acidity." (7/2009) K&L Notes: Franceso Drusian is the third generation of his family to make wine from the Prosecco grape, but the first to make sparkling Prosecco, which he has been doing since 1986. He cares for his vineyards in Conegliano and Valdobbiadene biodynamically, and this comes through in his wines. This Prosecco shimmers in the glass, casting glints of gold ... Read More »

1997 Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1997 Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico (93WS, 92RP, 3GR). Wine Spectator: "**Cellar Selection** Still closed, yet there's masses of fruit here, so give this outstanding Amarone some time. Vivid aromas of violets, berries and vanilla lead into this full-bodied wine, with its velvety, chewy tannins and a long, long finish." (04/2001)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The outrageous 1997 Amarone (17.5% alcohol) was aged 28 months in 100% new French oak. An inky/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of blueberry liqueur intermixed with truffle, graphite, camphor, and vanilla scents. This remarkable offering is immensely full-bodied and super-concentrated, with great purity, symmetry, and length. It is the stuff of legends! How long will it last? Who knows? Certainly this wine is capable of evolving for 15-20 years. (RP)" (12/2002)96 points James Suckling: "This shows so much fruit with licorice and graphite undertones. Full and round with ...Read More »

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby. Soft, sweet aromas of ripe cherry, cinnamon and white pepper, plus an intriguing floral note. Silky and luscious, offering a mouthful of sweet, ripe red fruit. Less balsamic and more elegant than most Amarones-and, happily, less overconcentrated and jammy. Finishes very long and smooth, with silky tannins. You won't even notice the wine's 15% alcohol. (made in the style of Amarone, with grapes air-dried for up to two months depending on the vintage) (Id'A)" (4/2006) K&L Notes: Around a quarter of the grapes that make the "Gelsaia" are dried for a month ...

Around a quarter of the grapes that make the "Gelsaia" are dried for a month before pressing to lessen the natural acidity and tannins of the Raboso. Daniele Cernilli: "It has been a decade since the 'Maestro' Luigi Veronelli (writing in Corriere della Sera, April 14, 2002) described Ceccetto's Raboso as a 'bewitching reality for its acidity, bouquet and structure'. Giorgio Cecchetto leads a group of producers that has worked to make this wine known. Raboso is an historic and indigenous red grape from the left bank of the Piave River that is difficult to...
