The Oddbins Take

Amarone is about as full-flavoured and juicy as a red can get without help of fortification; very smooth and silky with a tantalizing contrast of sweet and ever-so-subtly bitter, but not bittersweet, if you catch the drift... Amarone is an indulgent jump away from regular Italian red table wine and the product of a different winemaking method that gives it its magic properties of being like liquid fruitcake or bottled gateaux! This has the added bonus of keeping well and in good shape a few days after it has been opened.

After harvest, the grapes are air-dried for at least four months before any vinification begins. This “appassimento” is done by completely natural means, without any artificial alteration of humidity or temperature: the only technological aid used is ventilators to limit the development of unwanted botrytis rot. The grapes lose at least 40% of their weight, concentrating their sugars and flavours. They are then fermented and left on their skins for a further twenty days before being racked to small Slovenian oak barrels for eighteen months ageing.
