About a couple months ago I started a series on my visit to the Anteprima Amarone in Verona, Italy in February thanks to the Consorzio della Valpolicella. Below are my previous articles to get you up-to-date, but today is the final article that I featured for my column in the Bostoniano “Italy Uncorked”.

Due to the 30 inch storm we got in Boston I got forced to head over to Italy a day early. Life is tough, but sometimes you gotta do it. Immediately that night I attended the Bolla winery and had a wine dinner with the winemaker and Director. The following days as you'll see I had a jam packed itinerary and attended a number of wineries throughout the Valpolicella wine region including luncheons at some of the wineries, or as they like to say “light lunches”, concluding the day with wine dinners.
