GRAPE PRESS: Ahhhhh, Amarone

from GBA

GBA's intrepid wine tasters traveled to Italy on your behalf, to taste — for the first time, we're embarrassed to admit — the amazingly wonderful Amarone wines, whose grapes are grown in Valpolicella, near Verona. The grapes used for Amarone — mostly Corvina — are dried, usually for 120 days, concentrating the sugars and flavors, giving Amarone an unmistakably distinctive taste. If you like red wine, you MUST try some Amarone. Generally speaking, it tends to be a bit pricey, but — like so many other wines — top price does not mean top quality. In fact, back in the States, we've been able to find some excellent Amarone, like Antiche Terre Venete 2012, for about $21. Many others are available on line for less than $40. Find more by entering "Amarone 2012" (or whatever year you prefer) into an app like Wine Searcher. And by all means, if you haven't yet done so, give Amarone a try. For us, it was worth the trip. more
