Tasting Notes: Ca’ Del Monte’s Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico’s is a dark angel of sorts. The brilliant garnet red color lures you in, while the ghostly nose works it magic into your heart. Inhale, spices and warm oak will charm you. This is not for the weak; it is bold and elegant with great complexity and character. This full-bodied wine is an adventure that your mind will long for. Like the wine, big and strong foods pair best. Try it with stufato (meat and vegetable stew) or a beef tenderloin with a truffle butter sauce. Or keep it simple with pasta and beans, some bread, and tasty seasoned cheeses.
