ITALIAN AMARONE with Grape Skins - Winexpert International. Italy's most powerful wine, Amarone is renowned as a fruity, full-bodied, with rich intensity from the dried grape skins included in the fermentation. Winexpert's Selection International Italian Amarone with Grape Skins is an 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. Pair with 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. Alcohol by Volume 13.5-14%. Sweetness: Dry.
