Reviews

  • "91 points. A slightly fresher and easier style compared to the Campo dei Gigli is offered by the 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Selezione Antonio Castagnedi. The blend of fruit is the same as the other wine, but this Amarone sees a lighter oak regime with two years in tonneaux instead of three. The 2011 vintage is soft and warm with a lower threshold of aromatic complexity compared to 2010 and 2009. Its round fruit personality makes this wine more suitable for near-term drinking."
