Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby red robe with an intense and highly developed nose with notes of dry herbs, prunes and cherries. Full-bodied with a velvety, warm mouthfeel and a long finish.

Enjoy with grilled or roasted red meats, game, and tasty and piquant cheeses, like parmesan.

Critical Acclaim

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This fresh Amarone offers an inviting fragrance of perfumed berry and exotic spice. Notes of graphite, black pepper and clove give depth to the ripe plum and blackberry flavors. It’s balanced with firm, chewy tannins. Drink through 2019.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Well-spiced and expressive, with bright flavors of plum sauce, violet, cherry pit, licorice and medicinal herbs, layered with a minerally underpinning. Firm and well-knit. Drink now through 2025.

Le Salette, Veneto, Italy
For generations the Scamperle family has dedicated itself to growing grapes, and, over the years, to gradually increasing the number of grapevines.

Today the family owns twenty cultivated hectares, situated here and there among the most renowned places of the Valpolicella Classica Doc area: Fumane Cà Carnocchio, I Progni e Cà Melchiori, Sant'Ambrogio Conca D'Oro and in San Floriano Monte Masua. The type of grapes produced are the most classical types of the zone: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Oseleta, a small quantity of Molinara, and Croatina.

The vineyard has grown slowly and carefully, always respecting the local technique which is sensitive to nature and has followed nature's rhythm to bring out the originality and characteristics of the grapes.

A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
