Save $15.33 (21%)

SKU 09698


Deep ruby red color with mahogany reflections on the edges. Intense and highly developed nose with hints of ripe fruit and cherry jam. Clean on the palate with a delicious smoothness followed by the familiar hints of warm alcohol and obvious complexity to the structure. Long and delicate finish with touches of cinnamon and vanilla. Amarone is a full-bodied wine for grilled or roasted red meats, game, and tasty and piquant cheeses, like parmesan.
