Amore Wine Details

Description: A Labrusco wine, filled with the robust berry that has made it famous throughout the East coast. This sweet red has a distinct Concord flavor without the strong foxy character associated with that varietal.

Varietal Definition
This native American grape varietal (of the genus vitis labrusca) is used in making old- fashioned, "rustic" country-style red wines, often displaying what most people think of as a "grape jelly aroma." In fact, the Concord is widely used in the production of jellies and jams. This East Coast varietal produces wines that have been variously described as foxy, meaning they have a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky. Mogen David is perhaps the quintessential Concord wine.
