An exceptional value, this bottle is made using the traditional method of drying the grapes to raisins, then pressing those raisins to extract their sweet goodness, yielding a powerful red wine with rich aromas and flavors. Typically, the alcohol, tannins, and acidity are elevated, taking the intensity to 11 on the 1 to 10 scale. This hearty red displays fruitiness, but also the classic Amarone complexity and meaty, earthy tones.
Serving Suggestions: Gorgonzola Piccante, Roquefort, Pecorino Stagionato. Braised beef w/ olives & cipollini onions. Pasta w/ cream sauce & fresh black truffles.
