Since Giuseppe demands absolute top quality, he labels his Amarones only in exceptional vintages; in lesser vintages he refuses to produce any Amarone at all; but in fair years he declassifies it, giving it an IGT appellation and calling it Rosso del Bepi, as in 1994 and 1996. Forward, delicious, and already becoming a cellar addition for many collectors. The 1996 was released last year and became our fastest selling bottle in 2004.

Wine SpectatorAn exotic red, with rich, smoky currant, mineral and tobacco on the nose. Full-bodied and smooth, with raisins and slightly off-dry flavors--especially mangoes. Soft, fruity tannins and a long, long finish. Delicious. Drink now through 2006. 660 cases made.
