Last year, our wine team was buzzing over the anticipated arrival of this wine. We had no doubt that it would become one of our biggest wine deals of 2017 and without question ... a smash hit for the holiday season. Due to a snag, the container was delayed and the wine just arrived now.
What would have been one of our best-selling wines of 2017 ... just became one of our best-selling wines of 2018! Just be sure you grab it before the price goes up ... or the wine sells out!
This is about as big a deal as you can find ... especially on a top-flight Amarone! This stunning offer not only is available at an incredible price of just $29.99, but it also earned a tremendous 95 point score with the Decanter World Wine Awards!
As explained on Decanter, The Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) is the world’s largest and most prestigious wine competition judged by top wine experts from around the world. The DWWA is respected internationally as an unrivaled source of wine recommendations.
"Opens up beautifully with ripe and pronounced notes of raspberries and cherry fruit. Elegant and sensual palate with juicy tannins, complex spices and a long, fresh aftertaste. Stunning!" 95 Points Decanter World Wine Awards
This is absolutely spectacular. At this price ... and with this kind of press ... it won't last long! Grab it while it does!
More about this producer:
Guerrieri Rizzardi, the historic wine-growing estate in the Veneto region, was established with the union of two ancient Veronese wine making families of substance: the Counts Guerrieri, owners of a centuries-old estate with vineyards and cellars in Bardolino, and the Counts Rizzardi, who acquired their vineyards in Negrar back in 1678, building the historic cellar of Pojega shortly thereafter. The small estate of Dolcè in Valdadige has always belonged to the Guerrieri estate of Bardolino. The Soave estate, with its vineyards and cellar in Costeggiola, at the center of the Classico area, was purchased in 1970.
Today, the estate is under the ownership of the Rizzardi family. It remains a family business with vineyards in the four Classico areas with a thriving production of Bardolino, Valpolicella, Soave, and Valdadige. Guerrieri Rizzardi is based in Bardolino, housed in the ancient building belonging to the Guerrieri family and its ancestors since 1450. All the grapes come from estate vineyards and the wines are vinified and bottled in the cellars situated in each appellation.
At Guerrieri Rizzardi, the relationship between the land, heritage, and tradition has, for many years, molded their philosophy, yet they have never lost sight of innovation in their quest to produce a better bottle of wine.
The 3 Cru Amarone is made up of 80% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, and 10% Barbera. The grapes are sourced from Guerrieri Rizzardi’s 3 single vineyards: Calcarole, Rovereti, and Pojega
Directly after harvest, the grapes are air dried through a process called “appassimento”, which allows them to shrivel into raisins. This concentrates the sugar and flavors in the grapes, producing a distinctive and full-bodied wine well-suited to aging.
