    Winemaker's Notes:

    Made from Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Oseleta grapes following a thousand-year old appassimento tradition of the Valpolicella region: After the grapes are hand-harvested, they are left to dry for three – four months in shallow racks, stored in a well-ventilated, state-of-the-art drying facility. The result is a super rich and concentrated wine. Amarone is an iconic wine, and is extremely important not just to the Valpolicella region, but to Italian winemaking on the whole.

    This ruby-red wine displays warm and spicy aromas of dried cherries, plums, mocha, fig and sweet spice. On the palate it is well-structured, velvety and elegant. This wine makes an excellent pairing with roasted or grilled meats and game, hearty casseroles, aged cheeses and it also pairs brilliantly with Middle Eastern or Asian cuisine—even sushi! This versatile wine is ready to drink now, but will age beautifully for years to come.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This full, thick Amarone offers masses of ripe fruit and fresh herbs, with velvety tannins. Turns to black pepper and fruit on the finish. Should age beautifully, but why wait? Drink now.
