Product Overview

The 2016 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
Aging: 24 months in French oak tonneaux, 18 months in Slavonian oak casks, followed by 12 months in bottle prior to release

95 Points - Vinous
"The 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Sant'Urbano takes some time to blossom in the glass, as mineral-tinged blackberry evolves into a display of currants and cherries complemented by hints of sweet mint, lavender and violets. It’s velvety in texture and savory to the core, coasting dark red and black fruits across a medium-bodied frame, contrasted by vibrant acids, as grippy tannins form up toward the close. This finishes youthfully structured yet amazingly long, with echoes of licorice and purple inner florals. The 2016 is geared for the cellar, and in need of some time to soften, but my expectations are very high." -EG, Feb/2021

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Made with organically grown grapes, this full-bodied, plush red has inviting aromas of baked plum, new leather, camphor and violet. Smooth and enveloping, the delicious palate doles out mouthfuls of fruit cake, baking spice, fleshy blackberry and licorice. Velvety tannins provide softness while fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Drink through 2031." -KO, 3/1/21

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"A well-knit, medium- to full-bodied red, with light, taut tannins married to bright flavors of wild cherry, tangerine peel, star anise and brambly herb and underbrush, ending with a racy finish. Drink now through 2031. 8,300 cases made, 2,500 cases imported." -AN, 4/30/21
