Is there a good Amarone under $40?

jcoz23 | Jan 7, 2008 11:32 AM

I am looking to buy a bottle of Amarone for a wine tasting, but trying not to break the bank. I don't know much about Amarone, but from what I've read there are types that are more syrup-like that would pair better with a cheese course and others that are more medium-bodied that would pair better with meat. I am looking for the second type since all the tasters would be new to Amarone, I figure best to start with the lighter version. I have read in previous threads that Masi would be a good one to try, but I was hoping for something a little cheaper. Is that wishful thinking on my part? If not under $40, could someone that knows more about it than I do please recommend the cheapest one they find to be good?
