Wine Wednesday: Buglioni Valpolicella

I've been told that Mariano Buglioni makes wines based on his passion for them; he doesn't need the money. His wines are Valpolicella, from Veneto. --- Wine Advocate recently gave 2005 Buglioni Amarone della Valpolicella Classico ($67) a 92-point rating, and it's one of my favorites, too.

2005 Buglioni Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a blend of 65% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 10% Rondinella and 5% Molinara. The Amarone spends 30 months in small, French, oak barrels and is brimming with dark cherry, blackberry and cassis flavors. It's a stunning, complex wine that I'd be tempted to pair with any dish incorporating black truffles.
