Buy Trabucchi at Chambers St

A seductive Amarone to enjoy all winter long.

 


If you even think you might like Amarone you must try the 2002 Trabucchi Amarone.  Not only does this wine defy your Amarone stereotypes, but it does so at about half the price of many better known, though not more satisfying, labels.

One of the issues I have with Amarone is that they can be huge, and thus tough to pair with food. The way it's made concentrates the flavors of the grapes, and can introduce a dried fruit character that, while great with cheese, can make Amarone tiring to drink.

Not this Trabucchi. In 2002 the Amarone process concentrated wonderfully fresh fruit with an intoxicating bouquet. While this vintage may be a touch lighter than normal, it is so seductively silky that you won't even care. This wine is bursting with incredibly succulent, ripe fruit, and absolutely shimmers with a brightness that is all too frequently lacking in Amarone,

Simply put this is great Amarone, and a great deal: only $29.99 at Chambers St. Wines. If you order a case, you can even mix and match from their great selection of artisanal wines, you can get an additional 10% off.  $26.99 for a great bottle of Amarone. Know what I call that? An unbeatable deal.

So order a few bottles From Chambers St. Wines and fill out a case for your 10% discount. With their great selection of delicious, and inexpensive, wines it may be hard to stop at 12 bottles.

    You should also mention ripasso, Valpolicella with Amarone must added to give extra body,depth and edge.

  • alas, I am in PA and the vintage is 2001 and the retail is $42.39. Government control is just wonderful, remember that when you listen to the State of the Union address tonight, government adds cost, limits services not the other way around as they like to tell us.

    I very much enjoyed your article on these great wines, the are underappreciated in the US. But just for the record, after the grapes are dried they are then Crushed, the must fermented on the skins and then pressed as you would most red wines.

    Absolutely right gcred.

    Thanks for pointing it out.

    I live in Italy in the Veneto region. I don't think I have ever had the 2002 Trabucchi Amarone although I have tried some of the others. I must buy a bottle of this Amarone and give it a once over! I will let you know what I think of it once I've tasted it!

    I just went to the crush of Gino Cuneo's domestic Amarone, made in Oregon from Washington-grown nebbiolo, Barbera and Sangiovese. (http://www.btwowine.blogspot.com) Does anyone know of anyone else who is making a commercial, domestic Amarone?
