Italian Amarone Wine Kit w/ Skins - Selection International
Italian Amarone with Grape Skins is Italy’s most powerful wine, Amarone, is renowned as fruity and full-bodied, with rich intensity from the dried grape skins
included in the fermentation. Winexpert’s Selection International Italian Amarone with Grape Skins is an intense, complex
wine, with a wide array of fl avors and aromas. Deep, nearly opaque red, this heavyweight exudes aromas of sour cherries,
dark chocolate, stewed plums, dried fruits, anise, raisins, bitter almond, tobacco, leather
and molasses, and has a spicy-earthy bittersweet fi nish that goes on and on from the huge
volume of tannins.
Pair with grilled beef, strong dry cheeses (Parmigiano Reggiano or Asiago), pasta with
meat-based tomato sauces, antipasto, veal or roast pork. The gripping tannin in this wine
also makes it a natural for other red meats and game, and the fruit lifts up well-herbed
or spiced dishes. While excellent with food, Amarone is often enjoyed by itself, sipped
outside of mealtimes with good conversation and good friends.
