10 not to be missed Amarone (2016 vintage preview) – Italian Cuisine


We attended the Amarone Preview in Verona to taste the new 2016 vintage: elegant and balanced, it will be talked about. Our top 10!

The event organized and promoted by the Consortium for the Protection of Valpolicella Wines took place, as usual at the Palazzo della Gran Guardia in Verona on 1 and 2 February. There 17th edition of the Amarone Preview turned the spotlight onvintage 2016, which has been able to benefit from a fresh and balanced climatic trend, thus favoring the production of wines based more on elegance than on power, of a more classic style and, above all, more easily matched at the table. Those of this year are Amarone with persuasive floral and fruity aromas, with less dry extract and less sugary residue and with structure, acidity and tannins in excellent balance.

The samples were tasted this year 54, part already bottled and part still barrel samples.
