91 Point Wine Advocate : Tinazzi's 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella La Bastia Ca de' Rocchi opens to chewy, dark concentration with rich layers of mesquite wood, Spanish cedar, sweet cherry preserves and barbecue smoke. The wine ages in oak barrels for two years and the wood influence is strong. Some of those toasted notes should diminish with bottle aging, but this will forever remain a spice-driven Amarone. Thankfully, the natural richness of the fruit offers good balance. The blend of grapes used is 85% Corvina, 15% Rondinella and 5% Molinara.
