Marion Amarone della Valpolicella 2016

 

If you love the wines from Valpolicella but you haven't heard of Marion then you should probably listen up. Alongside Quintarelli, Marion, is one favourite producers of Valpolicella, and there is obvious reason for that. Marion’s winemaker Celestino Gaspari worked for Giuseppe Quintarelli for 15 years and it is very evident in both the finished wines and the production method. The Amarone is deep, dark, brooding and structured. 100% dried grapes as required by the DOCG to make this very concentrated and decadent wine. A beautiful example of the style and one to be appreciated.

Monte Faustino la Traversagna Valpolicella Ripasso 2016/2017

 

Produced from the three Valpolicella grape varieties of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara. Ripasso is made by the addition of pomace of leftover grape skins and seeds from the fermentation of Amarone to a batch of Valpolicella wines for a period of extended maceration. The wine spends 10 days on the Amarone skins before 18 months in oak barrels. This adds body and complexity to the wine - a `baby Amarone`. A sweet cherry nose leads to a soft and supple palate with notes of woodland, sweet black fruits and a touch of leather maturity on the finish.
