2002 Tommaso Bussola "BG" Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

SKU #1035404

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate"The 2002 Amarone Classico BG is simply superb. Endowed with deep layers of black cherries, chocolate and licorice, it reveals a sweet, voluminous texture and outstanding length. While it may not have the stuffing to be particularly age worthy, it is incredibly delicious today. In 2002 the Amarone Classico BG contains the fruit that otherwise would have been used for the Amarone TB and Vigneto Alto. The wine was aged in a combination of new and used Slavonian and French oak barrels. The blend is 65% Corvina and Corvinone, 30% Rondinella and 5% Molinara and miscellaneous other varieties. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2012. Tommaso Bussola's wines have received a good deal of critical acclaim over the last few years, and with good reason. These are remarkable wines of the highest level. The estate produces two lines of wines. In theory the BG wines are more traditional in spirit while the TB wines are meant to be more modern. In reality the main difference comes down to vineyard selection, as the estate's best fruit is reserved for the TB range"

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
