Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Made using Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara, this wine utilizes grapes that are first fully dried on mats for several months before being pressed and then aged for 3 years in 35-litre Slovanian oak barrels. The resulting wine is filled with aromas and flavours of black plum, sweet cherry, vanilla, dried meat and dark chocolate. This dry, intense wine is an excellent match for rich meat dishes, or enjoy it after a hearty meal with dark chocolate (70% cacao and above). My note: Juicy sweet black cherry liqueur runs through the core with some smoke and dark spice on the finish. Full-bodied to the max.

Amarone Della Valpolicella food pairings: rich meat dishes, dark chocolate (70% cacao and above).
