Professional Wine Reviews for Le Ragose Amarone Della Valpolicella 2006

Rated 92 by Decanter
Le Ragose's Amarone della Valpolicella is quite pretty. Plum and black cherry notes meld into freshly cut flowers, cloves and licorice. Firm yet nicely integrated tannins provide the framework in an attractive, deceptively mid-weight Amarone that should drink well for a number of years once it settles down. (Galloni)
Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is slightly muddled at first, but give it a few minutes and this wine opens to pretty aromas of dark prune, wet earth, leather, dried fruit and black cherry. There’s a pretty...

Additional Information on Le Ragose Amarone Della Valpolicella 2006

Winery: Le Ragose

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 in north-eastern Italy has always been associated with viticulture, being one of the most historically important regions in Italy and Europe at large, and having a strong tradition of trade and innovation. The history of the region has clearly had an effect on the wine which is produced there, as the influence of neighboring countries such as Austria is clear in the refreshing, clean and alpine flavored white wines which are typical of Veneto's wine culture and present in the excellent and famous Soave wines. Although over fifty-five percent of the ninety thousand hectares Veneto has under vine is used for the production of white wines, the region also produces some superb red wines which use a wide range of native and imported grape varietals. These include Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, alongside more traditional red grapes associated with Italian wines.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
