Aurum Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico DOGC 2011

Most people probably are not aware of Amarone wines. These wines are from the Veneto region of Italy and are made using the recioto method of drying the grapes, which intensifies the flavor and produces a higher alcohol content. This wine uses primarily the Corvina grape (80%) with the balance being Molinara and Rondinella. This wine is aged in American and French oak casks for 18-24 months and if stored correctly it may be aged in the bottle for another 10 years. This wine is deep purple in color and has the aromas of ripe fruit, plum, and vanilla. This wine is dense on the palate, with balanced aromas and soft tannins that gives a light pull on the long …. long finish. This is a super Amarone with both elegance and length. Enjoy this special wine with roasted or grilled meats, game, and ripe cheeses. Priced at $29.99 this wine is ideal for that special occasion or celebration!! This awesome wine is available at your FO Costco. Cheers!
