The 1996 Valpolicella is amazing. Readers will have to redefine their definition of Valpolicella to understand this blockbuster. The color is a dense purple. The bouquet offers glorious levels of blackberry and cherry fruit intertwined with vanilla, minerals, lead pencil shavings, and spice. The wine is full-bodied and voluptuously-textured, with sweet tannin and a seamless finish. It is an enormous yet incredibly symmetrical Valpolicella to drink over the next 2-5 years; it will last for 15-18 years. (RP)
Big and powerful, with black pepper, berry and violet character. Full-bodied and chewy, with a long, fruity finish. A triumph for a Valpolicella. (JS, Web-2002)
