Remo Farina 2000 Montecorna Red (Valpolicella)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $19

With toasted aromas as well as whiffs of bacon, leather, cola and hickory, this offers a mighty fine nose. The palate is equally impressive: It’s rich and meaty, with expressive cherry fruit and lots of spice. The chocolaty, firmly tannic finish completes this rich wine. Editors’ Choice.

Cesari 2000 Recioto della Valpolicella Red (Valpolicella)

  1. $30

By nature, recioto (sweet) wines sometimes carry some sharp vinegar aromas, but after that it’s all about sweetness. This fine example fits that model to a T. The nose is grapy and full of bitter chocolate. The palate, meanwhile, is rich and pruney, with chocolate and blackberry jam notes. The finish is long and layered.

Chocolate and prunes abound in this dark, rich version of Amarone. Straightforward and easy to drink, despite a trace of heat from the 15% alcohol. A solid introduction to the genre.
