    This is a slightly more accessible wine with broad shoulders and lots of dark fruit richness at the core. The 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Il Bosco opens to dried prune, fig, blackberry and lots of lingering spice, tobacco and tar. The folks at Cesari use a simple blending formula for their Amarone wines, just 80% Corvina and 20% Rondinella, and this contributes to the direct and linear personality of the wine. There are few hidden messages here, just straight-shooting textbook Amarone intensity and opulence, a great pick for a mushroom lasagna. The grapes see three months of appassimento, which is more than enough in a hot and dry vintage such as 2012. Drink date: 2019-2030. Score - 94. (Monica Larner, robertparker.com, Sept. 30, 2019)
