Professional Wine Reviews for Le Ragose Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Marta Galli Corvina Blend 2005

Rated 91 by Wine Spectator
Inviting flavors of sappy black cherry, date and mocha are well-knit with more traditional notes of forest floor, grilled herb and beef in this balanced Amarone. Silky in texture and juicy, with an expressive, spiced finish. Drink now through 2025. 800 cases made.
Rated 91 by Decanter
The 2005 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Marta Galli is deep, rich and nicely structured. Bright red fruit melds into gentle floral and spice notes as the 2005 shows off its personality. Nicely delineated throughout, the 2005 impresses for its balance and overall sense of harmony. Cedar, savory herbs and tobacco add dimensions of complexity to the powerful finish. (Vinous)

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's wine are much loved around the world for their strength of character, and the region itself is an interesting one from a viticultural perspective. Sheltered by the Alps, Veneto is protected by the harsh central European climate, making it possible to grow a wide range of high quality grape varietals, which wineries manage to do to great effect. This beautiful corner of north-eastern Italy has over ninety thousand hectares under vine, with over a third of this area having the prestigious DOC rating awarded to it by the Italian government. Veneto is Italy's second largest producer of wines, and their dedication to quality and innovation brings about a fantastic range of wine styles, enjoyed around the world for their flavors, aromas and distinctive character.

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.
