Amarone in translation from the Italian literally means ‘bitter’ and from a nation that produces and consumes tanker loads of Campari we should not be surprised that they see no marketing problem for a wine that describes itself thus. Yet the bitterness referred to is only noticeable as part of the finish where amongst the array of complex flavours being delivered is a walnut skin like astringency. Otherwise the palate is dominated by cherries, chocolate and some spicy plum. Consume with oxtail or something even more traditionally English like Spaghetti Bolognese. If time allows open a good hour before sharing. Top award from Vini Di Veronelli (two stars)
