Cecilia Beretta 1998 Terre di Cariano (Amarone della Valpolicella Classico)
Anyone who says the 1998 vintage is a step down from 1997 hasn't tasted this excellent wine. The nose is rich and simultaneously complex: soy, marzipan, leather and poached cherries are all there. The palate is quite a treat: There's snappy, acid-driven fruit as well as hints of orange peel, brown sugar and coffee.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
