Hailing from the Valpolicella region in Italy, this beautiful wine is made with Corvina grapes - unique to the region. This particular Amarone is full-bodied and has a boldness to it unlike many other wines.
It is a bold wine - it will literally take your breath away. Do not confuse this wine for a successful first date; it will be quite similar. The tannins are well-balanced which give way to a very smooth, very well-balanced sip. It is soft, and slightly sweet. To the eye: a romantically deep garnet red will assuage any doubts or fears one might have. On the nose: intense notes of dark red fruits alongside subtle suggestions of cherries and almonds. On the palate: velvet and silk made manifest! A long finish that sparks the perfect poly-marriage of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee.
This beautiful wine goes well with meat, undoubtedly. But what kind of meat? This bold wine pairs excellently with game. A wonderful dish would be capriolo alla montanara con polenta or Italian venison stew with polenta. This hearty dish (may substitute the venison for beef) is the perfect encapsulation of winter, with its autumery ingredients - like polenta, mushrooms, carrots, and onions. The heartiness of this dish will be perfectly matched by the boldness of the wine. Try it and we guarantee you will not be disappointed.
