Wine Review Wednesday


An Italian favorite from the Swiss Alps
Rocca Alata 2009 Amarone

Amarone from the Veneto region of Italy is a blend of several grapes and is almost always aged at least five years before it’s released. A longtime favorite of mine for its rich, full and complex flavor. Its name actually translates to “The Great Bitter” but… bitter is not what you will taste. To the Italian’s, bitter means dry…dry and FANTASTIC it is. Bite into this bitter Amarone and I promise you will be rewarded, or is it the beautiful Alps talking? You’ll have to see for yourself. Cheers!
