The purity of fruit in this dense, dark beauty demands celebration. It’s drinking beautifully now, but the next few years promise to pull out even more of that ripe cherry, bitter chocolate and spice. At this price, it’s easy to grab a bottle for the weekend and a few more to tuck away to enjoy the evolution of a full, powerful, generous Amarone.

Wine Spectator

Light, taut tannins and fresh acidity provide fine definition for the well-knit flavors of ripe cherry, spice and graphite, pomegranate and rose hip. Elegant and medium-bodied. Drink now through 2023.

Decanter

Rooted in the Marano Valley, the Campagnola family sources grapes from over 50 neighbouring growers. The 2016 vintage offers both dried and fresh fruit tending towards forest berries. Accents of winter mint and sage animate the nose and add dimension to the palate. Generous, round fruit is hemmed in by soft tannins, though these become a bit dry and dusty on the finish. Ageing is in a combination of large casks and French oak barriques. Drinking Window 2022 - 2028.
