"Amarone wine or as it’s officially named, Amarone della Valpolicella, is one of those wines that you buy and sit on and pray your marriage stays together long enough so that you can drink it on your 20th anniversary. It’s one of those holy-jesus-I-may-now-die-complete wines that, if you’re lucky, you can pick up for around $100. No, Amarone della Valpolicella is not cheap, but it shouldn’t be, it’s just too difficult to make–and also scarce. The Taste of Amarone Wine  . . . expect bold aromas of cherry liqueur, black fig, carob, cinnamon, and plum sauce along with subtle notes of green peppercorn, chocolate, and crushed gravel dust. Sound intriguing? On the palate, Amarone wines often have medium-plus to high acidity balanced with high alcohol and flavors of black cherry, brown sugar, and chocolate. By the way, the older the wine, the more it will offer flavors of brown sugar, molasses, and fig. What might surprise you about this wine is the presence of a touch of natural residual sugar (RS) in the wine, usually around 3–7 g/L (or about a 1/4 teaspoon per serving). The RS helps complement the wine’s naturally high acidity and adds to its boldness–if you didn’t know Amarone had residual sugar, you’d think it was dry."
