Italian Amarone w/ Grape Skins
Dry / Medium/Heavy Oak / Full Body / Finished in 6-8 weeks
Intense, complex wine, with a wide array of flavors and aromas. Deep, nearly opaque red, this heavyweight exudes aromas of sour cherries, dark chocolate, stewed plums, dried fruits, anise, raisins, bitter almond, tobacco, leather and molasses, and has a spicy-earthy bittersweet finish that goes on and on, from the huge volume of tannins.
Fermenting your wine on Grape Skins will add deep hues, enhance the bouquet, and promote chewy tannins for a lingering finish.
Grilled beef, strong dry cheeses (Parmigiano Reggiano or Asiago), pasta with meat-based tomato sauces, antipasto, veal or roast pork. The gripping tannin in this wine also makes it a natural for other red meats and game, and the fruit lifts up well herbed or spiced dishes.
This kit makes thirty 750mL bottles of superb red wine and includes:
