S.Giorgio Amarone della Valpolicella DOC Classico -

S.Giorgio Amarone della Valpolicella DOC Classico is produced by Azienda Agricola Boscaini Carlo. Winery produces also particular white wine GARGANEGA an rosè wine MOLINARA but also Grappa and Olive oils. San Giorgio di Valpolicella, or Ingannapoltron, is part of the territory of Sant’Ambrogio, one of the five towns that constitute the Valpolicella Classica wine producing region, at the foot of Mount Solane. It is situated on the top of a rocky outcrop, built around its church, of the same limestone on which it lies.

Then to the topic;  Amarone della Valpolicella, usually known as Amarone, is a typically rich Italian dry red wine made from the partially dried grapes. For this wine grapes used in production are Corvina 50%, Corvinone 35%, Rondinella 10% Croatina & Dindarella 5%.The final result is a very ripe, raisiny, full-bodied wine with very little acid with over 15% alcohol content.

Tasted wine as aperitf and then with fillet steak. Excellent match, wine became even sweeter with salty meat and peppers. Suits definately with all meats, cheeses and even with Asian food.

Steak -


Dark red with some hints of brown color


Warm, cherry like generous bouquet


Rich and well balanced, almost sweet as Amarones usually are

Amarone -

Excellent red wine especially for fans of Amarone. Winery produces only 3500 bottles per year of this wine which makes this wine rarity. Do not be scared about alcohol content, it is only 15.5%.

Good wine is good wine, it makes no difference where it came from or where you drink it.

Very nice review! I can almost taste the Amarone just by reading your description.

Cin cin! Amarone is one of my favourites.

Amarone is my all times favorite wine, but I always gave up on trying to find the one which I like, over the past 3-4 years. The one I was blown away by, about 10 years ago, had clean and sweet dried fruit nose (raisins, figs), and perfectly balanced, dry palate, with good fruit and full body, but balanced – good acidity, no alcohol heat, good tannins. How would you compare S. Giorgio Amarone to my description?

Many Amaroners I have tasted were close to Ripasso. Complicated taste and bouquet as you describe. But good Amarone is great.
