2012 Tedeschi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

SKU #1341973 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Dark ruby-red. Dark plum, blueberry jam, coffee and lavender on the slightly warm nose. Rich, dense and nicely focused, with peppery red and black fruit flavors complicated by coffee and cocoa nuances. Finishes with youthfully chewy but noble tannins, very good length and a lingering red berry perfume. Concentrated and high in alcohol, it's very well balanced too and remarkably easy to drink. Possibly the best-ever entry level Amarone from Tedeschi. (ID)  (3/2012)

93 points Wine Spectator

 There's a sanguine edge to this firm red, with a streak of minerality underscoring flavors of sour and red cherry, cigar box and red currant, with just a touch of sun-dried tomato. There's a dense weave, yet this is still light-weight and silky on the palate. Best from 2013 through 2027. (AN)  (10/2011)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a big, big wine. Plums, mocha, chocolate, spices, new leather and flowers are some of the notes that emerge from this fleshy, large-scaled Amarone. This is a fairly obvious, fruit-driven Amarone, but it works. Firm yet well-balanced tannins frame the insistent finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. (AG)  (12/2011)

Italy

- 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.
