We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The key, we think, is not only the age of his vines but the fact that they are nearly all naturally low-yielding ancient clones: Corvinone (40%), Corvina Grossa (25%) and Rondinella (20%). Corvinone, in particular, is quite rare today because of its low yields and finicky growing habits. Yet, Tommaso claims it is the Corvinone that gives his wines their depth. He calls it the "Super Corvina," saying that it produces stronger, denser, richer, more perfumed wines.

Wine SpectatorCompact and pure, with lovely floral aromas accompanying the sweet date, currant and lightly spiced vanilla. Full-bodied, with a tight, firm tannin structure underpinning the dense dried fruit, followed by a long finish. A stylish Amarone. Best after 2010.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is the wine that formerly carried the "BG" designation as the estate's entry-level Amarone. This is an accessible, fresh style of Amarone with well-delineated aromatics and plenty of clean, focused fruit. Medium in body, it offers outstanding finesse and depth on the palate. This bottling is aged in a combination of small and large barrels of various sizes. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2014.
