94 Luca Maroni - Annuario dei Migliori Vini Italiani
“This wine has all the pulp and the sumptuous glycerine of a great Ripasso, the softness and the clarity ... The fruit is so dense, harmonious, and rich.”
"Dried fruit and oak dominate the nose and and are reprised on the fresh palate. It has length and line in its stride, but sheer drinkability is the clincher here."
Is this an Amarone? The short answer is no. The longer answer is ... it sure acts like one. There are few wines that will deliver this much fruit ... this much structure .... this much power ... while still being perfectly balanced.
Especially in the $20 and under price point.
We expect this to be one of our most exciting under $20 offers of the year for those of you who are looking for full-throttle reds that don't disappoint when it comes to fruit, style and sheer power.
This delivers on all of those fronts ... and then some.
We have been able to offer some great deals from Italy this year. This, however, is quite different in the fact that there have been very few offers in this category. In fact, it's a category so many of you are looking into now as the fall season is here and the need for big, rich, full bodied reds is rising.
This ... is an outrageous steal from one of our favorite producers in the region!
