Amarone is one of Italy’s most noble wines. Hailing from the northern Veneto region, Amarone is produced with the Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara grape varieties. The grapes are harvested ripe in the first two weeks of October and allowed to dry, traditionally on straw mats. This process is called appassimento or rasinate (to dry and shrivel) in Italian. This causes an intense concentration of the remaining sugars and flavours.
Wine Enthusiast magazine awarded this wine 89 points and had this to say:
“Young and sprightly, this bright Amarone delivers fresh notes of berry fruit, exotic spice and cola. The quality of the nose is very clean and polished, and the wine boasts sweet flavors backed by impressive intensity.
