A towering, huge Italian red wine made using the traditional Appassimento method of drying the grapes in Veneto to make Amarone. Aromas of black fruit, smoke and mocha. Pair with braised meats.

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

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A wine created using the traditional appassimento method of drying the grapes in Veneto to make Amarone. On the nose - dark jammy fruit, smoke and vanilla - it is rich and complex on the palate with well integrated flavors of blackberry, plum, cassis, dark chocolate, dried herbs, cedar and vanilla. Perfect served with rosemary crusted lamb or a hearty veal stew.
This Amarone Della Valpolicella is from the Veneto wine region. Farina Le Pezze Classico (2013) is just a big Italian red made in the traditional Appassimento method of drying the grapes in Veneto to make Amarone. The wine is rich, complex with dark cherry liqueur, black fruit, smoke and mocha on the palate. Drink now and often. - 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.
