We are happy to for the first time in the US be able to present an Amarone della Valpolicella, one of the classic wines of Italy. Amarone is a very rich red wine made with partially dried grapes from Valpolicella, in the Veneto region in North-east Italy.

Ever since the winery was founded in 1898, Cantina di Soave has followed a growth plan that has made it one of the leading and most prestigious Italian wine producers.  Over the years,  the winery has assembled a priceless mosaic of production sites and vineyards that today embrace five valleys in the eastern Verona area, spanning three famous DOC denominations, Soave, Valpolicella, and Durello. 

This Amarone is made from grapes harvested in various vineyards located on hills in the Valpolicella region (Mezzane and Tregnago hills). The wine sparkles ruby red in the glass. The bouquet shows notes of vanilla and notes of sweet fruits such as black currants, blueberries and sweet cherries. The taste is velvety, with a raisiny character combined with the structure and a typical enduring and intense flavor. This Amarone is suited for ageing, if you can resist drinking it. It is delicious with red meat and aged cheeses. We recommend decanting this wine so it can unfold its full aroma.
