2013 Tenuta Santa Maria "Riserva" Amarone

"Platinum Award Winner"
SHIPPING NOW

We're huge fans of Dal Forno and Quintarelli Amarones.  

But...

At $300 per bottle, those two Valpolicella powerhouses make great special occasion wines.  

At $75 per bottle and a fraction of their price, the 2013 Tenuta Santa Maria "Riserva" Amarone will blow you away!

You may recall, last year we flipped for the 2012 release.  Back again and front and center, the 2013 Tenuta Santa Maria received an impressive 97 points from Decanter and highlighted by them as a Platinum Award Winner in addition to our accolades.  

Intoxicating notes of preserved cherry, black and blue fruits, clove, dried rose petal, cinnamon, and oak spices. Voluptuous, but magically light on its feet, it has penetrating red fruit and hearty cocoa notes. Framed by harmonious acidity, a warm palate and velvety tannins, this Riserva will captivate you.

​​​​​​​Not just a powerhouse...

This wine is very approachable and graceful despite its heft.  Decant for 30 minutes and be wowed. The room will fill with crushed cherry and dried fig aromas.

Hoard this amazing Amarone (only 100 six-packs imported) for yourself and enjoy with classic pairings of a grilled steak, hard cheeses, or spicy tomato ragu.

Enjoy!

$74.95 per bottle / $899.40 per case

Summary


DECANTER

97 / 100

"Lovely complex nose of plums, liquorice, cherry brandy, subtle leather, tobacco, and spice. Lush and velvety tannins on the palate, with sweet cherries, cloves and nutmeg, this is round and generous with beautiful length."
