amarone

Amarone is a wine that goes well with richly-flavored foods and dishes. It's great paired with gorgonzola cheese. It also pairs well with game, whether grilled or prepared in a hearty stew.

Chunks of parmesan drizzled with fine old balsamico (not the $4-a-500-ml bottle stuff).

I second the game suggestion.

It also pairs well with spice flavours and can handle a bit of sweetness. One of the most memorable matches I've tasted was an Italian medieval dish, a duck stew with red wine, vinegar, sugar and warm spices.

Barbecued baby back ribs.

Spicy sausages.

Savoury fruit preps: dates stuffed with gorgonzola and/or foie gras pâté; bacon-wrapped prunes on rosemary skewers, etc.

Italians sometimes consider Amarone a wine "to contemplate life" to, without food. But if you must, the above suggestions are good - something distinctive and full-bodied.

I thought the line mentioned Chianti and not Amarone.

Chianti in the movie, Amarone in the book.

Thanks,
