Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

Veneto, Italy


Zardini Amarone della Valpolicella ClassicoJust north and west of the historic city center of Verona approaching the shores of Lake Garda lie the rolling hills of the Valpolicella wine region. Valpolicella is Italy's 2nd-largest producer of quality (DOC) wines, and when it comes to red wine, the area is dedicated to the production of just three varieties: Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara. These are the same grapes used in the production of Amarone, Valpolicella's most aristocratic wine.

Amarone is a rich, robust wine because the grapes used to produce it are picked later from just the oldest vines to ensure full ripeness and character, and then stored over the winter to dry and become raisins. Over the four months or so that this occurs, the grapes will lose 30-40% of their weight, resulting in intensely concentrated fruit with a very high sugar content. It also translates to more expensive wine as it takes over twice the amount of fruit to produce it.

This Amarone is full-flavored, warm, and inviting, with an intense ruby color, and a complex bouquet of ripe fruit. The palate shows a perfect balance of smooth tannins, luscious fullness, and good acid structure that is quite nice to drink on its own, or try it with the “Petite Parmesan Baskets” from our Wines by Jennifer Cookbook!
