Amarone Torre del Falasco is a red Italian wine produced by Cantina Valpantena, a winery located in the Valpolicella region of Veneto.
The wine is produced exclusively from Corvina Veronese, Corvinone, and Rondinella grapes, which are grown on medium-textured soils containing sand and clay deposits. Harvest takes place by hand in the first half of October.
The grapes are left to dry for about 4 months, so that they lose water and concentrate the sugars and aromas. The winemaking process takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature for 15-20 days. The wine is then aged in Slavonian oak barrels for at least 2 years, followed by a further refinement in the bottle for at least 4 months.
Amarone Torre del Falasco is an intense red wine with a deep ruby color. It has a complex aroma rich in red and black fruits, such as cherries, plums, blackberries, and blueberries. The taste is rich and enveloping, with robust tannins and good acidity.
Amarone Torre del Falasco is a wine for aging and can be kept for many years. It is perfect with dishes of red meat, game, and aged cheeses.
Amarone Torre del Falasco is a robust and structured wine, with robust tannins and good acidity. These tannins can be enhanced by dishes of red meat, such as filet mignon, New York strip, ribeye, and ossobuco. Red meat is rich in fat, which helps to balance the acidity of the wine.

It is also excellent with structured cheeses and chocolate desserts. It can also be enjoyed as a meditation wine.
