Owned and run by the Lavarini family, the Corte San Benedetto winery is located in Arbizzano di Negrar, 10km to the northwest of Verona, in an ancient rural court from which the winery takes its name. The family can trace its origins as local landowners back to 1800 and currently farm 18ha of vineyard. This wine hails from vineyards just outside the small town of Camporal, in the hills of Marano di Valpolicella. A blend of 60% Corvina, 20% Corvinone and 20% Rondinella, it spends three years in 900-litre oak tonneaux and then another four years in 30hl Slavonian oak casks before release. Michael Garner: Attractive dried fruit aromas - red cherry, cranberry and fig, with flashes of charred spice and cherry menthol. Full, rich and round with plenty of grip, this is a serious mouthful which is holding up well and could go on. Andrew Jefford: A fine Amarone, being not too forceful or overstated. It's textured, deep and rich yet very refined and detailed, offering fine-milled tannins and supple, supportive acidity. Wonderful stuff. Monty Waldin: A ripely dark-fruited, concentrated new oak-influenced Amarone from a warm year which is peaking nicely. Big, bold, perhaps not very subtle, but will certainly gain fans for its exuberance, depth and character. Drinking window: 2019-2027. Score - 96. (decanter.com, Dec. 20, 2019)
