TOP AMARONE FACT: Did you know that in the book "Silence of the Lambs" Hannibal Lecter drinks Amarone with his liver of dubious origin, not Chianti as in the film!  

Castelforte Amarone is made from dried Corvina and Rondinella grapes. A long, slow fermentation and minimum 18 month aging in large oak give this dry, full-bodied red wine a deep garnet red color, a complex bouquet of cinnamon, cherry jam and walnut and a palate of ripe black cherry fruit with notes of vanilla and coffee on the finish. It pairs perfectly with rich pasta dishes, game and grilled or stewed red meats as well as mature cheeses.
