Wine Advocate 93 points - With Antonio Castagnedi’s signature on the bottle, the 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Selezione is one of the best Amarones currently available from the excellent 2010 vintage. Its appearance is dark and extracted and the bouquet opens to spicy plum cake, dark prune, wet earth, dried rose and supple shades of used leather or suede. The wine feels plump and thick in the mouth with a long, voluptuous finish. That wonderful balance between acidity and structure promises a successful aging future. Drink 2015-2025.
Wine Enthusiast 89 points - This boasts aromas of plum cake and vanilla, with whiffs of toast and oak. It has a ripe-cherry flavored palate, with espresso, coffee and oak sensations. (Nov 2013)
