As soon as autumn creeps in, we experience a growing desire for warming red wines, such as Amarone di Valpolicella. Amarone is one of the most famous and appreciated wines in Italy. Immense on the nose and palate, rich and corpulent, this wine is only produced in the region of Veneto from a selection of grapes mainly consisting of Corvina (from 45 to 95%), together with Corvinone and Rondinella.
Amarone, with high alcohol content, complexity, and body, needs to be matched with equally rich foods. Traditional matchings are braised and roasted meat with tasty gravy, game, aged cheese, Think beef fillet en croute or coq au vin!
