Italian Amarone Style (w/ Grape Skins)
Winexpert Selection Premium

Wine Region: Italy

Winexpert’s Selection Italian Amarone with Grape Skins is an intense, complex wine, with a wide array of flavours and aromas. Deep, nearly opaque red, this heavyweight exudes aromas of sour cherries, dark chocolate, stewed plums, dried fruits, anise, raisins, bitter almond, tobacco, leather and molasses, and has a spicy-earthy bittersweet finish that goes on and on, from the huge volume of tannins.  Pair with grilled beef, strong dry cheeses (Parmigiano Reggiano or Asiago), pasta with meat-based tomato sauces, antipasto, veal or roast pork. The gripping tannin in this wine also makes it a natural for other red meats and game, and the fruit lifts up well herbed or spiced dishes.

Sweetness: 0  out of 10

Body: 4  out of 5

Oak: 2  out of 3

18 Liter  kit will yield approximately:
6  Gallons of Finished Wine.
28 to 30 750 ml bottles.

Included with Kit:
  • Juice Concentrate 18 Liters
  • Yeast
  • Stabilizers
  • Clarifying Agents
  • Grape Skins
  • Oak
  • Flavor Pack
  • Full Set of Instructions
The addition of processed grape skins to kits can be an excellent way to improve and enhance body, mouth-feel, tannin, and color. With lower levels of processing, grape skins carry more solids into the finished wine than concentrate/juice alone kits have traditionally had.The result is enhanced body, mouth-feel, tannin, and color, and in our case, the trade-off for a marked increase in character is not accompanied by the need for increased aging.The process followed for producing our grape skins removes most of the short-chain (harsh) tannins, leaving behind the smooth, mouth-filling tannins and the desirable flavors.

The wines will drink very well almost as soon as they are bottled, and will improve on the same scale as regular Selection International: 6-12 months to achieve a high peak of flavor and improvement for up to three years under good cellaring..

Excellent Red Wine
I was introduced to your Amarone wine kit about 4 years ago. My father-in-law made wine as a hobby. Being Italian this was his favorite wine that he purchased from you. He made numerous kits for himself, friends and family before he passed early last year. Since then I have tried to carry on his passion for wine making and have found a true liking to the Amarone blend. This wine is so rich in flavor with the many different aspects of taste. I enjoy the hobby, have had many compliments on my wine that I have produced and really enjoy the ease of the kits. Controlled timing and easy steps to follow all produce a quality wine and a proud feeling of accomplishment. I look forward many more kits to purchase in the near future.

Delicious Wine
Our Amarone kit is hard at work making our delicious wine. This is my third purchase with you and I must say I''m always delighted with the end result. My husband''s favorite wine is Amarone and it was difficult to find in stores. Since we''ve purchased from you he gets more compliments on his wine than ever before. So as you can see we are very happy customers. Thanks for selling wine kits with the grape skins, it makes the difference between good and great wine.
