Corvina & Veneto Reds

Amarone from Valpolicella is produced by blending Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, and Molinara. The grapes are picked late to ensure a high level of ripeness and then dried in order to concentrate the flavours during pressing - this technique is called appassimento. It takes about twice as many grapes to make Amarone and the lengthy fermentation time is often longer than 45 days. Amarone is then aged in oak for a minimum of two years. This produces a wine that is rich, full-bodied, with flavours of blackberries, dark fruit, and chocolate. Pair with BBQ ribs, rack of lamb, or steak.

Dal Forno 2013 Amarone della Valpolicella 750ml

$565.13

The 2013 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta is my favorite wine in the retrospective, along with the amazing 2011, 2009 and 1996 vintages. This wine was released at the beginning of this year, and because Dal Forno skipped over the 2014 vintage,...
