Nice deal but this thread is for Amarone. If you can find this excellent wine cheaper please let me know.

voted hot

Wotwine? reckons they'd pay £14.29, so slightly overpriced normally, but hot at £10.

You're correct it's normally between £14 & £15 so Tesco are being a little cheeky here but still a cracking deal. This wine is one of my faves and this is the first time I've seen it on offer.

You won't regret it. It's a little sweeter than other red wines as it's made with partially dried grapes.

See here for a comparison with Valpollicella Ripasso which is made as a byproduct of Amarone.

this particular amarone is a proper wine and better than any supermaket CNDP
it's not sweet either, it's 14.5 abv so there is little residual sugar

thanks... can't find it tho ... gutted

found it now ;-)
