Details
Amarone is a legendary, assertive wine of the Valpolicella area in Italy. Unique and distinctive character comes from the addition of dried grapes during fermentation. The resulting depth is likened to Port or Late Harvest wines but without the sweetness.

The wine has a foundation of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes from the Veneto region. The must is fermented on crushed varietal grapes from over 10 pounds of virgin fruit plus 4 pounds of whole red wine grapes which have been sun-dried to concentrated perfection. A double dose of untoasted oak is used to balance the wine and, with aging, tame the natural tannins.

The wine is full-bodied, deep garnet color and richly dry. Notes of plum, sour cherry, raspberry and vanilla gradually marry with anise, bitter chocolate, coffee, tobacco, leather and fig tones that develop with age. Long, lingering finish and alcohol that should exceed 15%.

Try to give this wine at least 1 year of aging to enjoy the truly remarkable Amarone experience.

CRUSHED GRAPE PACKS

Cellar Craft uses over 12 pounds of virgin, varietal grapes to produce "Crushed Grape Packs” for true, on-the-skins fermentation in its Showcase reds. All of the natural skins and solids from variety-specific grapes are captured for extra extraction of aromatics, flavor, tannin, color and body during the fermentation stage.

Ready to bottle in six to eight weeks.
18 liter kit produces 23 liters (6 gallons) of wine.
