Andersons, Talmadge Road, Wine Tasting. 6-8 PM. Valpolicella and Amarone. Amarone wine has a tremendous concentration. This is achieved by drying the grapes, traditionally done in the sun on straw mats, now done with air driers, to concentrate the tannins, sugars and accentuate the skins by removing moisture from the grapes. These are formidable wines. Here is a rare tasting to sample six great Amarone producers. 1. Mazzi Valpolicella Classico Superiore, 2. Bussola Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso, 3. Villa Erbice, 4. Mazzi, 5. Santi, 6. Masi Costasera, 7. Nicolas, 8. Nicolis Ambrosan. Nominal fee per sample.
