This is a typical, authentic Amarone offered at a great-value price for a genuine Amarone, typically a very expensive wine. Amarones come in different styles. This wine is an excellent example of a style of authentic Amarone where the grapes have had a shorter appassimento—drying time—(2-3 months rather than, say, a more traditional 5 months) and the wine has spent between 1 and 2 years in oak aging, as opposed to 2 years or more. This makes for a more easy-drinking style of Amarone.
Grape Varieties: 70% local Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 10% Molinara.
Origin: The hills surrounding the village of Badin in Marano, in the Valpolicella Classico region, Veneto, northern Italy.
Aging: Aging in oak barrels for at least one year, followed by 3 months refinement in the bottle.
Tasting Notes: Intense ruby-red color. Complex aroma with hints of plum jam and balsamic vinegar. On the palate, it is full-bodied and balanced, with flavor notes of blackberry jam, black currants and chocolate.
Food Pairing: Excellent with strongly flavored dishes such as roasted red meats, braised meats, game, grilled meats, and strongly flavored hard cheeses.
Serving Temperature: 18° to 20°C (room temperature or a bit lower).
