SURPRISE-THE 'New'/Old Amarone Red Wine

Del Posto/NYC

A focused wine tasting featuring a selection of AMARONE Red Wines...from Veneto-Italy area-was a revelation.

THINK: Drink ready intense ruby-deep berry wines-with enough complexity, balanced acid, velvety tannins-full flavored fruity-spice hints...AND fantastic food pairing potentials with today's "IT" global cuisines!

Impressive.

And good values---ranging from around $20-$75.

indigenous grapes
