Amarone della Valpolicella, usually known as Amarone, is an Italian DOCG denomination of typically rich dry red wine made from the partially dried grapes of the Corvina, Rondinella. Valpolicella is in the province of Verona, within the large Veneto region near Venice. After harvesting the grapes for the Valpolicella Classico, they are immediately crushed and fermented. This is a light, high acid red wine; it has no oak aging.
Pairing: It is traditionally combined with game, grilled meat, braised meat and aged cheeses; it is also served outside the meal in moments when the conversation becomes more pleasant.
