[CSH101] (Ah-ma-ROE-nay) Amarone is a legendary, assertive wine of the Valpolicella area in Italy. Unique and distinctive character comes from the addition of dried grapes during fermentation. The resulting depth is likened to Port or Late Harvest wines but without the sweetness. The wine has a foundation of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes from the Veneto region. The must is fermented on crushed varietal grapes from over 10 pounds of virgin fruit plus 4 pounds of whole red wine grapes which have been sun-dried to concentrated perfection. A double dose of untoasted oak is used to balance the wine and, with aging, tame the natural tannins. The wine is full-bodied, deep garnet color and richly dry. Notes of plum, sour cherry, raspberry and vanilla gradually marry with anise, bitter chocolate, coffee, tobacco, leather and fig tones that develop with age. Long, lingering finish and alcohol that should exceed 15%. This 18 liter kit makes 6 gallons (30 bottles) of wine. All of the ingredients you will need are included in the kit and are pre-measured along with fool-proof directions.

Customer Reviews"Very impressed" Review by Sheri (Posted on 9/18/16)
This was my third attempt at wine making! Because of vacation and then lack of time, I didn't adhere to the timeline on the instructions (took longer). Will definitely repeat the process, it turned out amazing!"Excellent Very pleased!" Review by Sheri (Posted on 9/17/16)
I'm very excited with the results of this wine. Very excited to see what it tastes like 3, 6, 9 and 12 months from now."very good but not incredible" Review by Son of Lar (Posted on 1/14/14)
these kits are pretty expensive, so i expect a lot and this one is really good, but not 5 star. If you really like Amarone, then this is what you want. If you like cabs, merlot, malbec, etc. then this will do well but not separate itself completely.If i go ultra premium, the winexpert lodi ranch cab is the best. the cellar craft products are very solid and there is a lot of good choices in the sterling range."Great wine" Review by Fred (Posted on 5/5/13)
I like the full bodied flavor of this wine. I've made several batches and am always happy with the results.
