Two new autumn releases from Italy’s Famiglia Pasqua — well-known in these components for its dazzling Amarone — have hit our desk. Let’s give ’em a strive.

2019 Famiglia Pasqua PassioneSentimento Veneto Rosso IGT – A dense mix of corvina and croatina, with some merlot within the combine, this can be a hearty wine thick with blackberry, spice cupboard, and a few chocolate notes. Flamed orange peel informs a blueberry-enriched tartness and a vibrant end. Wines on this worth vary don’t usually carry with them this depth of richness. A- / $16

2012 Famiglia Pasqua Mai Dire Mai Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG – That is the present classic, and the wine that’s hit the bottle right here has arguably nonetheless not hit its prime. An enveloping, licorice-infused richness paves the best way  to notes of intense blackberry, darkish cherry, and a few espresso. There’s a contact of oxidation rising right here, however the wine concurrently feels younger and barely underdeveloped, a paradox that Amarone lovers solely will perceive. Intense and evenly beefy, with overtones of clove and extra licorice because the end builds, this deep and wealthy wine wants ample time in glass — and possibly one other 5+ years in cellar — to actually showcase its charms. I place confidence in you on each counts. A- / $113
