Professional Wine Reviews for Corte Sant' Alda Amarone Della Valpolicella Mithas 2006

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Mithas is impressive. It boasts superb richness, density and length. Sweet dark cherries, flowers, herbs and licorice are some of the many notes that waft from the glass in this seriously intense, powerful wine. Licorice, tar and sweet herbs wrap around the finish. My impression is that the 2006 is still gaining on the upside. It will be a fascinating wine to follow over the better part of the next decade. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.

Additional Information on Corte Sant' Alda Amarone Della Valpolicella Mithas 2006

Varietal: Corvina Blend

The Corvina varietal grape is one of Italy's most famous products, and is used in the production of some of the country's most famous and widely admired wine. Amarone and Valpolicella wines use a high percentage of Corvina grapes, and these wines make the most of the grapes' bright crimson color, and richness of sour cherry flavors Because the Corvina grape has a naturally high level of fruit acid, it is perfect for barrel aging This process rounds out the harsher, bitterer aspects of the grape, and produces wonderfully soft, mellow yet complex red wines. Most commonly associated with the region of Veneto, Corvina grapes have, in recent decades, been planted in several New World countries eager to emulate the fine wines found in Italy.

Region: Veneto

Veneto has, for hundreds of years, been one of Italy's most important wine regions, and many of the finest wineries and appellations near the Adriatic coast have reached levels of international fame and recognition unmatched by other parts of the country. Amarone, Valpolicella and Bardolino DOC regions are all widely understood to be amongst the best places in the world for flavorful, complex and interesting red wines, and the white Soave wines produced on the foothills of the Alps are enjoyed across the globe for their clarity and crispness. The region benefits from a range of micro-climates, protected from the harsh central European winters by the mountain range, and the generations of expertise and dedication to quality and innovation shown by the hundreds of wineries in the region.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' the land of wines so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
