Valpolicella Classico Superiore DOC – 2011 – 95 points – Benicia Herald
95 points

“The advances in quality in the Veneto in recent years is nothing short of stunning, particularly for Valpolicella. Once upon a time, the best grapes of each harvest went into the production of amarone, leaving most Valpolicella of a certain era wanting for flavor, complexity and, indeed, weight. No problem here. Cantine Buglioni’s II Ruffiano is a blockbuster of a Valpolicella, with impressive depth and richness. Intense aromas of black cherry and black current dominate, with an inviting earthy essence that provides additional complexity. The acids and tannins are firm, suggesting this wine will improve with additional time under good cellar conditions.”
