General impression Amarone is a red wine produced in the Veneto region in Valpolicella. The grapes here are harvested and then taken to cool, ventilated rooms to dry over several months. The raisins, now with richly concentrated sugars, are turned into a dry wine that is high (14-16%) in alcohol with a dark fruit flavor. This single malt is aged first in traditional oak barrels for 8 years before finishing its aging with Amarone wine casks.
