A big, full-bodied Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico from the Veneto Wine Region made in the traditional Appassimento method of drying the wine grapes for four months in making Amarone. This ruby red wine blend is 50% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella, 10% Molinara, Oseleta and Turchetta. Lush with earthy violets, dark ripe berry, cedar spice and savoury herb flavours on the palate. Still very youthful. Pair with meaty lasagne or grilled, herbed ribs

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico food pairings: pasta with a tomato sauce, roasted venison, beef daube, leg of lamb.

Franina Le Peeze 2016 is a lush and robust, youthful Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico. Love the earthy florals, cherry liqueur and dark chocolate aromas on the nose. Just a juicy and finishing long on the palate. The wine is aged 24 months in 30% French oak barriques and 70% Slavonian oak barrels to marry flavours and mellow the wine prior to bottling. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
