How you can buy better wine - Amarone
Full vid here ----> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5t2qW5QxyKo
It's the time of year when you might want to buy a really special wine to treat yourself. Well, nothing says 'Christmas in a glass' like a rich, bold Amarone della Valpolicella.
These wines have so much to offer: voluptuous body, layers upon layers of dried fruit, spice and chocolate undertones and well structured acid and tannin to match. When you're looking for a wine that has it all - this is it.
Turkey traditionally calls for crisp white wines, but I like to add something meatier and chunkier to my Christmas dinner. With all of the huge flavours you have on your plate on Christmas day, this is a wine which can stand up to it all.
Make sure you taste the wine before and after food, because you will witness real life magic! Before eating, Amarones display dried fruit, raisiny characteristics; but after something salty and strong flavoured, these wines turn to chocolate and cinnamon!
It's certainly worth splashing the cash on a fine Amarone, and if you do, look out for vintages 2007, 2009 and particularly (5*) 2008. Amarone is usually at its best 10 years after harvest. Speak to your local independent wine merchant and I'm sure they will have something special.
If you're on a budget, I found some bargains in the supermarket.
