We are delighted to say that this is the third vintage in a row that our flagship, single vineyard Amarone Classico Calcarole has been awarded the top prizes from both Gambero Rosso Vini d’Italia and the Guida Bibenda.

Both the vintages preceding this also won double honours:

2013 Calcarole Amarone della Valpolicella Classico: TRE BICCHIERI Gambero Rosso / 5 GRAPPOLI – Bibenda

2012 – Calcarole not made

2011 Calcarole Amarone della Valpolicella Classico: TRE BICCHIERI Gambero Rosso / 5 GRAPPOLI – Bibenda

2010 – Calcarole not made

2009 Calcarole Amarone della Valpolicella Classico: TRE BICCHIERI Gambero Rosso / 5 GRAPPOLI – Bibenda

The wine will be available to taste through a number of events throughout the rest of this year and in 2018 – we will update where and when here on NEWS.

 

 

Platinum Medal 95 points: Guerrieri Rizzardi 3 CRU Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2012

We are a little bit happy to say the least with this result. The 2012 3CRU Amarone has already been a firm favourite internationally so to get recognised in this way is a pleasure.
Here is what one of the judges had to say on the wine:

Opens up beautifully with ripe and pronounced notes of raspberries and cherry fruit. Elegant and sensual palate with juicy tannins, complex spices and a long, fresh aftertaste. Stunning!’
