Christmas in Italy never goes by without a bottle of Amarone. One of Italy’s greatest red wines, mainly made from the local Corvina grapes that are air dried until beginning of the year after the vintage. Rich and mature, it goes perfectly with hearty dishes like lamb stews, steak and kidney pie or brazed oxtail but also with mature cheeses and roasted chestnuts. Despite the considerable alcohol and richness, the best Amarone examples, like this from the renowned Salette estate, also provide bright and elegant character and are balanced by soaring acidity.
