EXCELLENT SCORES GIVEN TO OUR AMARONE WINE

EXCELLENT SCORES GIVEN TO OUR AMARONE WINE

16/05/2016
After the exceptional result ranking Vaio Armaron 2008 as one of the Ten Best Wines of the World last year, according to this authoritative American magazine, and the 91 points given to Costasera 2011 (Wine Spectator, April 2016), now we have the results for our three Amarone cru wines.

Insider (11th May 2016), the weekly newsletter that gives advanced notice of the results of the most important tastings held by the editorial staff of Wine Spectator, gives 93/100 points to Vaio Armaron 2009, the historic Amarone produced on Possessioni Serego Alighieri, confirming its position as one of the world’s best.
Classed among the “Hot Wines”, or “high-scoring wines from around the world that may be difficult to find but are worth seeking out”, are two outstanding Amarones from Cantina Privata Boscaini: Campolongo di Torbe 2009 and Mazzano 2009 which get respectively 94/100 and 95/100, the latter result putting Mazzano into the “Classic” category as one of the finest wines in the world.

These are the tasting notes from Insider:

Vaio Armaron 2009
An elegant red that shows a sense of finesse to the integration of supple tannins and tartinged minerality, with a rich palate of sundried cherry, dried fig, dried lavender and tea leaf, accented by hints of forest floor and espresso. The long, chewy finish is well spiced and lingering.

Mazzano 2009
A firm and focused powerhouse, with pureed black cherry, tar, mocha and herbed black olive flavors tightly knit to a dense, tannic structure, while hints of brambly berry, floral and spice gain momentum mid palate and linger on the racy finish.

Campolongo di Torbe 2009
A full-bodied red, with rich flavors of fig cake, dried apricot, smoky mineral and espresso, enlivened by bright, mouthwatering acidity and wrapped around a block of chewy tannins. Expressive hints of bergamot and dried lavender show on the lasting finish.
