Product Overview

The 2015 Speri Amarone della Valpolicella Sant'Urbano is an extraordinary wine with great complexity, elegance, and a vigorous structure. It has an ethereal bouquet of dried fruit, while on the palate, it is full bodied, warm, mouth-filling, and dry. Excellent with richly flavored main courses based on red meat, such as braised meats and game, and perfect with mature cheeses. It can also be enjoyed on its own at the end of a fine dinner.

Appellation: Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico
Farming Practices: Certified Organic

93 Points - Vinous
"The 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Sant'Urbano is flat-out stunning. It opens slowly with a beguiling display of sour cherries offset by sweet mint, lavender, hints of licorice, pine shavings and powdered sugar. It’s rich and deeply textural yet also full of energy, with masses of tart berries, exotic spices and dark chocolate saturating the senses, maintaining energy through vibrant acids that also work to balance the mounting tannins. A coating of fruit extract and hints of bitter coffee linger on the long, structured finish. The 2015 is intense, requiring some time to settle down, but once it does, watch out." -EG, Feb/2021

91 Points - Wine Advocate
"From one of the best vintages in recent Valpolicella memory, the 2015 Valpolicella Classico Superiore Sant'Urbano is a dark, penetrating and exuberant wine with a beautiful quality of smooth and concentrated fruit. The blend is composed of 75% Corvina Veronese and Corvinone, 20% Rondinella and 5% Molinara. This more-sophisticated wine also sees a 25-day appassimento process. It offers nice textural richness with soft tannins and dense fruit flavors. Some 70,000 bottles were released." -ML, 9/30/19
