WA 94 WE 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Vigneto Monte Sant’Urbano is a monumental achievement that shows what Amarone can do in a great vintage like 2009. There’s enormous power and substance here, backed by luscious prune, blackberry, cherry liqueur, cola and chewing tobacco. This single vineyard blend is 70% Corvina and Corvinone, 25% Rondinella and 5% Molinara. This wine is built to last. Drink 2015-2025.
According to Wine Enthusiast - This Amarone has succulent plum and black cherry flavors laced with nutmeg and pepper accents. The palate is delicious, but already a bit evolved, so drink this over the next few years to enjoy the generous fruit.
Winemakers Notes - Strong garnet red color and the ethereal bouquet of dried fruit. Full-bodied, warm, dry, all-encompassing to the palate. An important wine of rare elegance that lends itself well to aging. Excellent with strong second courses of braised red meats and game, perfect with aged cheeses. Also enjoyable at the end of a fine dinner. Rated 90+
