Was $80, today $36!! What a score! If you love rich, dark intense Amarone, all we can say is lock some in quick!

Watching these cases being unloaded from the truck gave us goosebumps. It is extremely rare to even see Amarone around our Napa warehouse. But DEGANI, at this price, from this fantastic Italian vintage, 2016, is...THRILLING!

Located in Valgatara, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico region, brothers Aldo and Luca Degani are a generation of growers running a small, dynamic winery in their simple cellar. Founded in 1970, the winery produces only 5 wines and approximately 40,000 bottles annually. Year over year, their adherence to the local traditions demonstrates that quality depends primarily on what nature provides. The Degani brothers own 6 hectares of vineyards in Marano and Fumane, in the heart of the Classico region, re-planted over 25 years ago. The vineyards are between 150-180 meters above sea level, with rows running north-south for maximum sun exposure.

As most of you savvy red drinkers probably know, Amarone is made by a special process where the grapes are dried on straw mats for a period of time before being crushed. This increases the sugar (although the wine itself is basically dry) and hyper-concentrates the flavors. This gives Amarone the rich, deep, lusty, almost musky flavors and aromas we LOVE it for. Degani’s 2016 is mouthcoating yet fresh with dark Morello cherry paste, dates, mocha and polished leather, finishing with red fruits and Asian spices -- very long and lip-smacking. SO GOOD!! Our price is simply absurd….please don’t wait!
