James Suckling tasted:

 

Antonio Rosso Veneto IGT  2015 –  92 pt

I love the play between dark, spicy brambleberries and blackcurrants and more lifted notes of sour cherries and citrus.

Full-bodied and tangy with juicy fruit and succulent tannins. Drink now.

 

Augusto Recantina Montello – Colli Asolani DOC 2016 –  91 pt

The fruit has certainly been dialed up here and ranges from blackcurrant compote to violet reduction and herb liqueur.

Some well needed, direct tannins pick up the plush flavors and keep them firm and juicy. Tangy on the finish. Drink now.

 

Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Superiore DOCG 2014 – 92 pt

This is a big Amarone, showing so much dark chocolate, vanilla, dark plums, meat, wet earth, eucalyptus and coffee beans. Full-bodied and very decadent indeed with a ton of dried fruit, a touch of sweetness and a long, chewy finish. A fruit-forward style, but I like it. Drink in 2023.

Young grappa

General features: Young and crystalline clear Grappa with a big personality, Giovane Giusti is a pure, fresh but distinctive spirit. This white grappa is obtained with a blend of pomaces coming from red and white grapes know to be outstanding for distillation. It lies for more than two months in large used oak Tonneaux before being bottled, thus giving the product its typical mellowness.

Food pairings: Ideal as an accompaniment for fresh fruit in season or as an aperitif in fruit-based cocktails.
