2017 Amarone della Valpolicella (Corte Majoli)

Corte Majoli, Amarone della Valpolicella, Veneto, Italy 2017

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

2020 Valpolicella (Corte Majoli)

Corte Majoli, Valpolicella Classico, Veneto, Italy, 2020

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.

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 very classically low in 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...

2019 Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso (Corte Majoli)

Corte Majoli, Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso, Veneto, Italy, 2019

65% Corvina, 30% Rondinella, 5% Molinara

BLACK CHERRY & PRUNE, CLOVE, LEATHER & TOASTY OAK

This region is home to several distinct styles of wine starring the Corvina grape, including standard Valpolicella, the dried grape version called “Amarone,” and “Ripasso,” which falls somewhere in between. Ripasso is begun like regular wine from standard grapes, but later on dried grapes (like the ones used for Amarone) are added prior to a second fermentation. This adds color, depth, body, and additional flavors, bringing out raisins, cherry, pink peppercorn, and sweet spices.

Serving Suggestion: Risotto w/ pork sausage, black pepper, rosemary & cinnamon. Lamb stew w/ carrots, prunes, cloves, & potatoes. Gnocchi w/ mushrooms & gorgonzola.
