2018 Antiche Terre Venete Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG

We thought it might be time to revisit this popular Costco Amarone.  The last time we reviewed it was back with the 2016 vintage that we enjoyed and gave 89 points. We have a similar story with the 2018 vintage that is in Costco stores right now.  The price did go up $1 to $23.99, …

2017 Kirkland Signature Series Brunello di Montalcino

2020 Argiolas Costamolino Vermentino di Sardegna

Finding this bottle at Costco was a nice surprise. Argiolas produces a number of white and red wines that we’ve always enjoyed (their Turriga is a popular one on the higher end).

2016 Antiche Terre Venete Amarone Della Valpolicella

I’ve almost pulled the trigger on this bottle a few times before. Rarely do you find an Amarone priced this low so I’m always a little skeptical. But Costco usually delivers, like they did on the Covalli Barolo that also seemed to good to be true for $14.99. This Amarone came in at $22.99 and …
