“Generally speaking, Amarone is a big wine in constitution and power, but Allegrini’s 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Fieramonte is an even bigger wine. This is a supercharged vintage that benefited from a hot growing season and a dry climate, which is important for successful appassimento. With broad shoulders and a full-bodied approach, this is a blend of 45% Corvina Veronese, 45% Corvinone, 5% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta. After harvest, the grapes are put in specially ventilated rooms to dehydrate for up to 120 days. Destemming and pressing occurs in the month of January following the harvest. The finished wine ages in French barrique for 48 months. You get thick waves of dark fruit, spice and camphor ash. In fact, those aromas are so large that they all fold neatly together into one large panoramic presentation. The wine sits firm and heavy in the mouth. Some 6,000 bottles were produced.” Issue 244 End of August 2019, The Wine Advocate

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
