Selection Italian Amarone Style with Grape Skins

  • $ 159.99


Italy's most powerful wine, Amarone is renowned as a fruity, full-bodied, with rich intensity from the dried grapeskins included in the fermentation. Winexpert's Selection Italian Amarone with Grape Skins is an intense, complex wine, with a wide array of flavours 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 finish 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.

Selection Premium Wine Kits contain 16 liters of 100% pure varietal juice and varietal grape concentrate, with perfectly balanced pH, acid and tannin levels. The large volume of pure grape juice in the blend provides more of the subtle characteristics than grape concentrate alone. Certain kits contain "F-packs" or finishing packs designed to enhance flavor and round out sweetness in those styles which require it. The F-packs are style specific and will be noted on the outside of the box if one is included. They are packaged in an aseptic, nitrogen purged bag placed in a very attractive outer box. Each kit makes six gallons.
