Staff Pick Notes

Viviani = lively. Especially with their Amarone. I’ve been perturbed by a proliferation of a downright sweet style of Amarone. Sticky, unappealing and un-special. All of the Viviani range is indeed special, but I decided to shoot for the stars and sing loud praises for the family’s most special of special - the Casa dei Bepi. All you Big Wine lovers (you know who are) should be grabbing this wine by the case. Hand-picked old-vine Corvina and Rondinella growing happily in nose-bleed-inducing high altitude vineyards create a superlative wine. Extra-traditional care is taken as the grapes are dried then pressed on rubber rollers. The wine matures 36 months in new French barrique. Don't poo-poo the barrique! Remember dizzying heights = acidity. Herbal notes compound the fruit and there is no awkward heat. A wine to fall in love with.

This is a very large region that produces all sorts of red wines, often from the Corvina grape, that range from light, early-drinking, Beaujolais-esque efforts to hulking dried-grape monsters like Recioto and Amarone.
