About the Wine
Amarone is the rich wine of Kings from the area between Verona and Venice NE Italy. Grapes are air-dried for four months on straw mats, and then fermented. The resulting juice is raisined and sweet, and the yields are tiny. For this reason, the wine is highly prized. Extended aging for up to three years or more allows the wine to integrate and develop secondary characteristics of oak, vanilla, fig, dried fruit, leather, and baking spices. Amarone are fantastic cool weather wines with rich foods.
