REMO FARINA AMARONE DELLA

VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO 2013

DOCG

TASTING NOTE: Bold, layered, and full flavoured

– Farina’s Amarone is a wine that everyone will love!

Rich and delicious, it’s packed full of black cherry,

plum, dried figs, nutmeg, BBQ smoke, and cedar. Full

bodied with a velvety smooth texture, sweet dried

fruits and refreshing savoury flavours persist on the

long finish. It’s no wonder why Canadians love this

Amarone so much! Enjoy with Risotto all’Amarone,

beef medallions with figs and blue cheese, and save a

splash for dessert and enjoy with dark chocolate –

all incredible pairings with this wine! Score:

VENEZIE

TOMMASI PALANCA 2015

IGT Rosso delle Venezie

TASTING NOTE: Tommasi has long been a trusted

name in wine – so trusted that the family has been a

part of casual and formal dinners, parties and nights

in with friends, and all manner of celebrations for the

past 115 years. Floral and spicy with earthy fruit, tar,

dried dark fruit and sweet red fruit, this wine shows

excellent balance, which makes for a wonderfully

easy-drinking red. Fresh and lovely. A joy. (Vintages

REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA

– REDWINE

STOBI VRANAC 2015

Tikves

TASTING NOTE: Red and black licorice make a first

impression on the nose. Wild herbs and a hint of

fennel add complexity to the palate. Love the richness

and depth but also the brightness of acidity. Nicely

balanced and characteristically darkly coloured.

FUMANELLI AMARONE DELLA

VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO 2011

DOCG

TASTING NOTE: Resin, fragrant blue flower, baked

plum and cake spice are just some of the aromas you’ll

find on this densely concentrated wine. The syrupy

palate offers blackberry jam, mature raspberry, pipe

tobacco, mint and cinnamon while velvety tannins

provide the enveloping framework. It closes on a

chocolate note. Drink 2018 through 2026. Score:

LAVARINI VALPOLICELLA

CLASSICO SUPERIORE 2015

DOC

TASTING NOTE: Lavarini has been crafting superb

wines since it began operations in the 1970s. This

Valpolicella is a really great example of this popular

style. The grapes for this were hand-harvested and

fermented on their skins for 10 days. The wine is

fragrant and spicy with red cherry, raspberry, baking

spices, tar and a delicate lifted floral note. (Vintages

MONTE ZOVO RIPASSO VALPOLICELLA

SUPERIORE 2014

DOC

TASTING NOTE: This blend of Corvina, Rondinella

and Molinara is crafted in a graceful style that

delivers outstanding character. There are impressive

notes of tar, anise and plum jam alongside the

maturing fruit notes and earthy undertones. Enjoy

with a lamb stew, or with roast beef dinner with all

the fixings. (Vintages panel, May 2017)
