Natalie's Score: 93/100

A robust Italian red wine with fleshy black fruit and smoke. A full-bodied Amarone that is a traditional blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Moinara grapes primarily, among lesser amounts of other varieties. After drying the grapes in the traditional drying rooms for about 4 months, this wine is aged a long time in Slovenian oak barrels. A big wine to pair with pasta in meat or tomato-based sauces.

Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico food pairings: leg of lamb, cheese, venison stew, hearty lasagne.

Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Bold, layered, and full flavoured - Farina's Amarone is a wine that everyone will love! Rich and delicious, it's packed full of black cherry, plum, dried figs, nutmeg, BBQ smoke, and cedar. Full bodied with a velvety smooth texture, sweet dried fruits and refreshing savoury flavours persist on the long finish. It's no wonder why Canadian's love this Amarone so much! Enjoy with Risotto all’Amarone, beef medallions with figs and blue cheese, and save a splash for dessert and enjoy with dark chocolate - all incredible pairings with this wine! Tasted October 2016. 93 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
This Amarone della Valpolicella from Veneto is a rich, robust crowd-pleaser red. Remo Farina Classico (2013) is priced right for an Amarone that is a traditional blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Moinara grapes primarily, among lesser amounts of other varieties. After drying the grapes in the traditional drying rooms for about 4 months, this wine is aged a long time in Slovenian oak barrels. Have it alone, with blue cheese topped beef steak, even dark chocolate! - Community Wine Reviews

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.
