About the Wine
This super red wine made by Bottega is produced in the Valpolicella area of Veneto. This wine is exclusively distributed through Matthew Clark. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by Bottega SPA. Amarone della Valpolicella is an interesting wine, made from Cortese grapes. This cork closed wine is created with added sulphites. The wine is one of a growing number in our list that can be enjoyed by vegan drinkers. Rich, big Amarone is great with equally rich game, lamb and beef dishes.
