Tenuta Sant Antonio Amarone Del Val Selezione

Other Italian Stars
Here are more of the many unique and wonderful Italian wines to watch out for.
From the same blend of grapes as Amarone, this is Valpolicella enriched and deepened by a second fermentation on amarone skins. Great with rich tomato pasta dishes.
Sicily’s big red has a growing fan base. Dark and ripe, it still has a tangy acidity that works well with red meats and spicy vegetable dishes.
Barolo’s neighbour, also made from Nebbiolo grapes, rose to fame in the 1960s as a red of power and subtlety. Try it with calf’s liver and mushrooms.
