Amarone style red wine hails from Valpolicella in the Veneto region of north-eastern Italy. Traditionally, Amarone is made from only three approved grape varieties—Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella. To prepare the grapes, winemakers use a process known as ‘apassimento’, an Italian term for drying the harvested grapes for up to several months to concentrate the sugars and flavor. Amarone is known for its full-body, strong flavor, and high alcohol percentage. Some speculate Amarone’s creation to date back to Ancient Rome, as this powerful red would have slaked the Roman’s thirst for highly alcoholic wine.

Our Italian Amarone Style has a deep red fruit quality with notes of tart cherry and raspberry, a hint of chocolate and spice, with a moderate oak character. Standing tall at 14% alcohol by volume, this full-bodied wine is quite dry with a long lingering finish.

The Signature Series™ Amarone Style is one of the most satisfying kits to make thanks to the inclusion of grape skins. You’ll mirror the professional vintner process of “punching the cap”, which makes your winemaking adventure even more hands on. VineCo’s jammy skin packs are much more expressive than dried grape skins, imparting more character from the grapes and boosting tannin structure in the finished wine.

High quality French oak cubes are used in the making of the Amarone Style kit. One of the reasons oak has always been used to age wine is the slow release of delicious, complex compounds that complement the wines flavor. Oak cubes have more depth of flavor than chips or powder and slowly release compounds like furfural (sweet, caramel like), lignins (vanillin, spice, smoke), and lactones (classic oak flavor). French oak in particular is known to deliver refined, less apparent oakiness than American oak. It's famous for adding mouthfeel and flavors of custard and chocolate while still allowing the fruit flavors of the wine to shine through.

The Vineco Signature Amarone Style is best enjoyed over a hearty meal of red steak or venison with good company, or as an after-dinner treat paired with heartfelt conversation with that special someone. Not to be poured on any occasion, but savored as a delicious moment.

good flavor but
The wine kit in it's self is great, the problem is Amarone is supposed to be a higher alcohol % wine (14-16%). If you follow the instructions it ends up at a 1.082 s.g. which ends up at around a 11-12% so to get to the intended strength you use less water, then your at 5 gallons instead of 6. In short, Give me the wine style i paid for.

Amarone
I have not started to ferment this kit as of this writing, yet I have used other kits and the Amarone is an excellent wine. Many of my friends and relatives' have always commented how good this wine is. This is very good even if not aged but excellent if aged for at least a year or more.
