Term Definition
Amarone

Pronounced: Am-arr-own-ee

Full name is Amarone della Valpolicella. One of the most famous wine regions in Italy. The region is in northern Italy. Amarone is made from semi-dried grapes - making the wine more concentrated, intense, alcoholic and dense (viscous). Styles do vary depending, partly down to the extent the grapes have been dried, but also depending on whether the winemaker is making a wine in new stlye Amarone (with a purer, cherry fruit) or the old style (more port-like with aromas of chocolate, rum and leather).
