Rocca Sveva Amarone

Amarone is a special wine - a rich Italian red typically made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes thats both full bodied and dry. Its the fourth best selling wine in Italy and this Rocca Sveva Amarone showcases why.

Offering a deep ruby, almost inky color, this wine is full of ripe red fruits on the nose and a blend of light balsamic, cherries and hazelnuts on the palate. Its a dry, but well-structured wine and full of tannins that would be great to to pair with red meats or strong cheeses.

Cost: $50/bottle
