Decanter
91 Points

A sombre, brooding beast packed with dried fruits, savoury spice and a mineral stone edge balanced by a refined, elegant structure.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva DOCG “Teste Dure” – 2010

Wine Enthusiast

Inviting aromas of ripe dark-skinned berry, new leather, cocoa and forest floor emerge from the glass. The concentrated palate doles out black currant jam, licorice, black pepper and tobacco alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink 2019–2027.

Intense soy-sauce and cooked-plum nose that won’t be for everyone, but on the palate this is rich and silky. Good length. Drink now with mature hard cheeses.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG – 2015

jamessuckling.com
95 Points

The power but also vibrancy of the fruit on the nose is very impressive. Dark plums, incense, tar, dried meat and elderberry compote are out in full force. The soft fruit would be enough in itself, but its enveloped in meaty, chewy tannins that give this imposing structure and form. The finish is long and powerful and the hints of earth give a savory edge to this robust Amarone. Drink from 2023.

Il Bugiardo Valpolicella Classico Superiore DOC Ripasso – 2015

The Wine Advocate
92+ Points

The 2015 Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso Il Bugiardo is a very exuberant, very full and fruit-forward wine. Showing ripe, sweet and dark fruit with sweet spice at the end, this would spread holiday cheer with a pumpkin ravioli. The wine has a silky-smooth texture, with a nice entry into the mouth, all framed by soft tannins. This Valpolicella sees only a light appassimento and a partial ripasso in small barrels.

Valpolicella Classico Superiore DOC l’Imperfetto – 2015

The Wine Advocate
91 Points

The 2013 vintage was good, but this was a really great year. The 2015 Valpolicella Classico Superiore L'Imperfetto is a ripe, full and generous expression with red cherry, blueberry and blackberry aromas. There is both bright fruit and dried fruit here, with fresh berries on the close. I'd serve it with a meat-and-mushroom pie. The blend is 50% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 25% Rondinella and 5% Croatina. There is also a tiny bit of fruit from a five-hectare parcel of Oseleta, all aged in 500-liter barrels.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva DOCG “Teste Dure” – 2010

The Wine Advocate
91 Points

The 2010 Amarene della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Teste Dure is extracted, inky and soft. The wine is showing some maturity and evolution, with licorice and tar behind primary notes of dried blackberry, plum and raisin. I would suggest a slightly reduced drinking window as a result, maybe pairing it alongside lamb with balsamic reduction. The next time this Riserva was made was 2015, and the folks at Buglioni have been experimenting with whole-cluster fermentations and amphorae aging too. So far, they are happy with the results, so we will surely see these methods used in upcoming releases.

Buglioni's 2011 Recioto della Valpolicella Classico Il Recioto is rich with scents of bittersweet chocolate, rosemary, cloves, mocha and raspberry jam. The voluptuous, racy style is best enjoyed over the next few years.

This leads with an explosion of dark cherries and vanilla. Then come spices and earth. Dense and complex, but showing polish and form. Full-bodied, very structured and long on the finish. Drink from 2023.

“Strength and elegance … surprisingly smooth, and the alcohol appeared to be tamed by the wild fruit and thick acidity that countered it on the palate. Classic Amarone della Valpolicella finish — miles long, lingering in the sides of the mouth ...”

“Medium- to full-bodied and balanced, leading with more traditional notes of grilled herb and forest floor, then opening on the palate with flavors of sun-dried cherry, black olive and star anise. Lightly juicy, with sculpted tannins firming the finish. Drink now through 2025.”
