Commercially, Amarone starts at about $50 a bottle! Known as Italy’s most powerful wine, it is renowned as a full-bodied, rich wine that achieves intensity from unique dried grape skins included in the fermentation.
Cellar Craft Showcase Italian Amarone contains crushed grapes to help achieve our version of this deep, heavyweight of a red. It exudes flavours and aromas of cherry, dried fruit, dark chocolate, almonds and has a spicy-earthy finish that goes on and on for miles from a huge volume of tannins. An intense and complex wine.
Pairings: Grilled steak, strong dry cheeses (Parmigiano Reggiano, Asiago), antipasto or meat and tomato-based pastas.
Don’t forget that the grape skins are extremely easy to use. The kits come with a cheese cloth bag to contain the skins and it can simply be discarded after primary fermentation. (If you are making ‘on-site’ we’ll look after it!)
