Wine Advocate, 94 Points 

"The 2016 vintage offers more direct and precise fruit flavors that you taste here despite the air-drying process that defines Amarone. The Mazzi Roberto & Figli 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Punta di Villa offers an extra degree of complexity and depth that links this wine to this classic growing season. The blend is 65% Corvina, 5% Corvinone, 25% Rondinella and 5% Molinara, and the wine is submitted to 24 months of aging in barrique. The bouquet reveals dried cherry, baked blackberry, spice and grilled herb. The acidity is evident here, and compared to the Amarone Castel, the Punta di Villa shows less evident oak and more elegance as a result. This production of 9,000 bottles closes with cherry sweetness or cherry liqueur." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"From a blend of 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, and 5% field blend, comes this beautiful Amarone that’s at once dense and lifted. The 30-year-old vines grown in mineral rich soils bring density and impact to the palate in the form of rich black fruits, fig, leather, and pipe smoke. On the palate, the notes follow through, along with a touch of red fruit that lifts what is otherwise a dark, deep, and rich Amarone." 

Alcohol: 16.5%
