CORTE SAN BENEDETTO, wine grower in the Valpolicella region in the Veneto region of north-east Italy.


AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO RISERVA, CAMPORAL | 2009 60% Corvina, 20% each Corvinone and Rondinella. 16% alcohol. A ripely dark-fruited concentrated new oak influenced Amarone from a warm year which is peaking nicely. Big, bold, not very subtle but will certainly have its fans in terms of it exuberance and depth, and character (tasted blind for Decanter in London 17 Jan 2019).
