Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a richly-layered wine with opulent tones of plum cake, cinnamon snap, jammy fruit and dark raisin. There’s a tight and focused nature to this wine that underlines its fine quality and aging potential. The extraction is there, and so are the tannins and acidic components. Spicy tobacco and leather last long in the mouth. The wine is aged 36 months in large oak casks. Drink 2015-2025. (Monica Larner)

James Suckling

A firm and reserved style of Amarone with mint, light dried berry and stone character. Full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Better in 2015.

Sweet tobacco, plums, cherries, incense and grilled herb notes waft from the glass in the 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico. Soft and accessible, the 2009 doesn't look to be one of the most ageworthy wines to emerge from this cellar, but it is absolutely delicious today, and what is wrong with that? I expect this vivid, expressive Amarone will drink well for the better part of the decade.
