"93pts - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The Pasqua 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Mai Dire Mai (with 8,000 bottles made) is 65% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 10% Rondinella and 10% Oseleta from a vineyard with basalt and calcareous soils. Showing some tertiary evolution, the wine is savory and spicy with thick grains of texture and easy tannins. The overall effect of this wine is fleshy and soft.
93pts - Vinous The 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Mai Dire Mai is dark as night and seductive, presenting a display of ripe cherries, currants, sweet herbs, mocha and vanillin spice. It's silky, enveloping all that it touches in tart red and black berries, as notes of baker's chocolate and mint create a bitter yet lifted expression toward the close. There's formidable structure here, with plenty of primary fruits to match, throughout the long and dramatic finale. The Mai dire Mai is a single-vineyard expression from Montevegro that spends 24 months in a combination of new 225- and 500-liter barrels. Drink 2021-2030. (Eric Guido)
92pts - Wine Enthusiast This powerfully structured red opens with aromas of French oak, cedar, leather and cassis. The firm, full-bodied palate delivers steeped prune, coconut, grilled herbs and licorice alongside assertive, fine-grained tannins. It closes on a roasted coffee bean note. Drink 2022–2027."
