I had the pleasure to visit the Grand Wine and Liquor store in Astoria today and purchase a bottle of wine to pair with a casual steak dinner. The Amarone Della Valpolicella 2012 is made primarily from the Corvina grape located in the Veneto region of Italy. After harvest the grapes are air dried through a process called “appassimento” which allows them to shrivel into raisins, which results in making the sugar and flavors in the grapes to get more concentrated producing a distinctive and full bodied wine ideal for aging. (Vivino) I cannot wait to taste this wine!
