Claiming the spot for the Letter A is the Northern Italian super red that is Amarone!
Claiming just under 35% of the vote, it beat off a late and strong challenge from Auslese (we’ll have to work out how to fit that in again cos I’d love to do that too!) to claim the honour.
Usual New Wine This Week rules apply, we’ve got a few posts over the week to get us up to speed on Amarone, get some food pairing on the go, and then it’s time to get stuck in over the weekend!
My picks for Amarone are:
Marks and Spencer
Amarone della Valpolicella Villalta, 2011 @ £25.00
Sainsbury’s Amarone TTD, 2011 @ £16.50
Tedeschi Amarone, Monte Olme, 2007 @ £68.68
