"Amarone-esque" wines?

finlero | May 16, 2008 08:05 AM

Over the past few years, I've grown increasingly enamored of Amarone as one of the most distinctive and delicious wines available on the market. But obviously, even the lower-end Amarones don't come cheap.

Can you think of any wines that you'd consider "Amarone-esque", but perhaps at a lower price point? Are there any wineries outside of Veneto/outside of Italy that employ the Amarone-style winemaking process of drying out the grapes before pressing?
