2012 Amarone della Valpolicella (Corte Majoli)

Corte Majoli, Amarone della Valpolicella, Veneto, Italy 2012

Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella

COLA, LEATHER, BLACK PEPPER, FIGS, RAISINS

An exceptional Amarone value, the Corte Majoli is made using the traditional method of drying the grapes to raisins, then pressing said raisins to extract their sweet goodness. Then it's fermented dry and yields a powerful red with rich aromas and flavors. The alcohol is elevated, as is normal for an Amarone, and the intensity goes to 11 on the 1 to 10 scale. This hearty red shows the fruit of Corvina, but also the classic Italian meaty earth tones typical of classic Amarone.

Serving Suggestions: Hard Reggiano cheese, roast beef with olives and onions, risotto with sausage and Parmesan cheese

2016 Valpolicella (Corte Majoli)

Corte Majoli, Valpolicella Classico, Veneto, Italy, 2016

65% Corvina, 30% Rondinella, 5% Molinara

LOGANBERRY & DRIED CASSIS, BRIGHT & BOLD, ELEGANT UNDERBRUSH

A beautifully evocative perfume of forest berries and dried flowers belies the no-frills-ish-ly guzzleable appeal of this bright and very flavorful yet gentle red. Clocking in at a very classical 12% alcohol, this is not quite at the opposite end of the Valpolicella spectrum from the massive (and massively revered) Amarones and Ripassos of the region, but its relatively delicate frame makes it appeal to us by the gallon rather than the carafe...

Serving Suggestion: Roast pork w/ black pepper & dried cranberries or gojis. Triple cream cheese w/ dried mission fig, tart blackberry & pickled beet.

2014 Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso (Corte Majoli)

Corte Majoli, Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso, Veneto, Italy, 2014

65% Corvina, 30% Rondinella, 5% Molinara

BLACK CHERRY & PRUNE, CLOVE, LEATHER & TOASTY OAK

Verona's Valpolicella region is home to several distinct styles including basic Valpolicella, the dried grape version called "Amarone", and the “Ripasso” style featured here (which falls somewhere between) -– all starring the Corvina grape. The technique involved in Ripasso is to first make a regular wine from standard grapes, but in February, dried grapes like the ones used to make Amarone are added to this wine prior to a second fermentation which adds color, depth, and additional flavor to the final wine, resulting something like a super-Valpolicella or fledgling Amarone. Flavors of raisins, cherry, pink peppercorn, and sweet spices prevail. Firm, generous, and full-flavored!

Serving Suggestion: Hearty fare! Strong cheeses like Parmesan or Taleggio. Meaty stews with carrots, prunes, cloves, and potatoes
