JAMESSUCKLING.COM - Veneto - Zenato: Amarone Classico della Valpolicella

Amarone della Valpolicella, usually known as Amarone, is a typically rich Italian dry red wine made from the partially dried grapes of the Corvina, Rondinella (5–30%) and other approved red grape varieties. Valpolicella is in the province of Verona, within the large Veneto region near Venice. Notable wines have been produced there since ancient times. The wine was assigned Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) status in December 1990. On 4 December 2009, Amarone and Recioto della Valpolicella were promoted to the status of Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG). Total production for sale in 2008 was 8.57 million bottles. In Italian, the name Amarone literally means "the Great Bitter"; originally, this was to distinguish it from the Recioto produced in the same region, which is sweeter in taste.
