Did you order a grilled t-bone steak with vegetables or a veal liver “Venetian style” with onions and now you don’t know which wine is better as accompanying? Then Amarone di Valpolicella is the answer you’re looking for.
The Amarone di Valpolicella, usually known as Amarone, is an Italian DOCG dry passito red wine exclusively produced in the Valpolicella hilly zone in the region of Veneto. It is included in the dry passito category, because this kind of wine is produced by a selection of grapes that undergo a specific process called Appassimento (to dry and shivel). The Appassimento takes place on trellis called arelle in a period of 120 days that goes from the first two weeks of the grave harvest in October until January. Because of this method of production, the bunches lose weight: the water disappears, leaving sugar, which becomes alcohol in the fermentation phase.
You get a red coloured wine with a full, velvety and warm taste. The scent of Amarone di Valpolicella is unique: it smells of ripe fruit, black cherry and raspberry jams. It goes well with meat dishes and also as ingredient as in the risotto all’Amarone recipe. It is a respectable wine even if you drink it alone at the end of the night.
