Le Ragose Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2007
Amarone is a powerful, intense wine of 14-16% alcohol with a concentrated black cherry jam fruit flavor, yet the wine is dry. Dense and super ripe, while still polished and harmonious, this finishes rich and dry with firm tannins allowing for long bottle aging. Pair with roasts, red meat, duck and pasta dishes, or after dinner with chocolate or cheeses, especially from Italy. One of our favorite soft Italian cheeses to pair with this wine is Langa La Tur.

Wine EnthusiastSteeped prune, vanilla, resin, exotic spice and crushed blue flower aromas lead the way on this concentrated wine. The rich, dense palate delivers blackberry jam, raisin, licorice and mocha while firm, glossy tannins provide structure.
