  1. Atance Bobal Valencia 2017
    WA90+
    $9.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90+ Points! The single-vineyard red 2017 ATANCE is pure organically farmed Bobal from the Casa Segura at 800 meters in altitude. It fermented in 10,000-liter stainless steel tanks with destemmed grapes and indigenous yeasts followed by malolactic fermentation and an élevage of four to six months in 8,000-liter oak vats. There is quite a jump in quality from La Traca here; this is more serious and it has a finer palate with subtle chalky minerality. In fact, I think it transcends the vintage. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com Learn More

    WE93
    $44.98
    Availability:In Stock

  5. Giuseppe Quintarelli Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2011
    WA91
    $79.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91 Points! The 2011 Valpolicella Classico Superiore saw seven months of slow and careful aging in botte grande before being deemed ready for the market. The wine takes a little coaxing before it fully opens, and it requires a few extra vigorous swirls of the glass before it begins to reveal earthy tones of baked brick and potting soil. However, the core of the wine is definitely packed tight with blackberry and ripe plum. The hot vintage has shaped a wine with extra volume and textural richness (with 15% alcohol). - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More

  7. Le Fraghe Bardolino 2017
    $16.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Le Fraghe Bardolino tastes of cherries, blueberries, and herbs, with hints of orange peel, cinnamon and black pepper; it works with a range of dishes (pork, chicken, grilled salmon). The body of the wine is velvety (not unlike Pinot Noir), with balancing acidity, very drinkable; if the measure of a good wine is that you wish the bottle had another glass left in it, this wine is perfect. - Oliver McCrum

  8. Ilaria Accordini Valpolicella Ripasso 2016
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Finally!  It's great having a top-notch Ripasso back in the house at a fair price.  The Accordini is made in the traditional style, late harvest Corvina grapes are aged on Amarone lees. The must of the Amarone remains in the vat and instead of being pressed, it is topped up with high quality Valpolicella before being left to re-ferment for about 10-15 days.  The result? Full-bodied, Amarone-style Valpo at a great price...

  9. Giuseppe Quintarelli Rosso del Bepi 2008
    WA93+
    $149.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93+ Points! Giuseppe Quintarelli's namesake 2008 Rosso del Bepi (made well before this legendary figure would pass away in 2012) is made in the so-called average vintages when Amarone is not produced. This wine replaces Amarone in those declassified years, meaning that we see Rosso del Bepi made in 2008 and next again in 2010. The estate's Amarone della Valpolicella Classico, however, is produced in 2009 and 2011. The final decision on which wine will be released is made just a few months before bottling. In very difficult years, neither wine is produced. I have reviewed the 2008 vintage currently on the market now, although the 2010 vintage of this wine was shortly to be released when I visited the estate (but I did not get a chance to taste it). This wine reflects the ideals of a classic blend of Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella (with a smaller percentage of other varieties mixed in for good measure), although you do feel some of the extra heat of the vintage, with some lingering sweetness on the close. The wine registers at 15.5% alcohol, and there are ripe nuances of dark fruit, sweet cherry and jammy blackberry. The wine is immediately open, accessible and beautiful, but like all of Quintarelli's releases, it would also benefit from additional aging. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More
  10. Cantina di Verona Amarone Della Valpolicella Vallis Dei 2014

    Real Amarone for $25? Believe it! Importer Fran Kysela 'steals' this cuvee from the local co-op in Verona. 65% Corvina Veronese, 30% Rondinella, 5% Molinara, all good.
