MDT, I have not made that kit but I recommend that you read through this thread: http://www.winemakingtalk.com/forum/...amarone-35581/. Now, the Amarone that they are talking about is a Meglioli and comes with a grape pack. You might want to consider what Joeswine does with raisins in the secondary. I don't know how experienced you are so maybe you would feel more comfortable just following the basic directions.

Rock,

I did read that thread earlier today... I am not going to start the Amarone for a week or so (travel plans), I am interested in the raisin idea. Would you add them in the secondary as well for this kit? What kind of raisins would you use and how much? I have used California golden raisins several times in fruit wines with a good result. Thanks for the help!

Joe says he uses sun maid raisins one pound and yes to the secondary.

MDT, I buy 2 ea two pound bags as Sam's club (Sunmaid red raisins) and I used about a pound for a 5-6 gallon batch. I also pulse them in a food processor before adding them and, so far, I have only used them in primary fermentation. I really like Joe's idea of using them in secondary, makes a lot of sense and I plan to use his method in my next red.
