The Wine Advocate, 95p
Pouring from the bottle with a beautifully dark and concentrated appearance, the Roccolo Grassi 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella (made with 65% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 15% Rondinella and 5% Croatina) is super rich and ripe with syrupy aromas of cherry liqueur, pressed blackberry and crème de cassis. Production is 10,300 bottles, and 80% of the wine is aged in barrique, of which 20% is new. The rest goes into botte grande. The sticky ripeness is what stands out most, and this is a wine that will appeal to those who love the heft and power (with a whopping 17% alcohol content) in their Amarone. It’s a lot to take in.
