I Saltari, Amarone della Valpolicella (Veneto, Italy) 2007 ($55, Cru Artisan Wines): This is an easy-to-recommend Amarone from the highly regarded 2007 vintage. It’s appropriately big and concentrated while retaining elegance and balance. The truly appealing character is an invigorating interplay between the sweetness of the fruit and the bitterness from the structure. Certainly not a wine to savor as an aperitif, it screams for wintery fare. This wine belongs in every Amarone-lover’s cellar.
