Great Italian wine from Veneto region. Made from Valpolicella grapes.
There is a legend, that Amarone was made by mistake. Usually sweet wine Recioto was made, but something went wrong and wine went dry.  And Amarone was born. Rich, dry, full bodied, high in alcohol and very delicious.

I had Amarone
Farina le Pezze Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2007
 15% alcohol

Intense, fruity, layered aromas-mocha, prune, vanilla, and a little smokiness.
Dry, rich, good balance with tannins. It could age, but great right now.
Rich wine like that would go great with rich roasted meat.
