DELLA VALPOLICELLA DOCG CLASSICO
In the Reserve version we bottle only Amarone of the best vintages; 2012 is the next vintage we’ll send after a slow aging in barrels. Amarone is an outstanding red meditation wine, exciting even when uncorked 15 years after the harvest. It is obtained from the typical grape varieties of Valpolicella – Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and a small percentage of Croatina – cultivated in our vineyards on the hills of Marano, 350 meters above sea level. The vines are trained according to the traditional Veronese pergola and are between 10 and 30 years old. The specificity of Amarone lies in the 90 days long drying of the grapes before pressing, which allows it to stand the long aging and provides the unmistakable flavour profile with full, warm, velvety notes and hints of ripe fruit and woodland undergrowth.
