Calcareous, clayey hilly soil.
Amarone is a noble wine, obtained from the best bunches of the hills of Valpolicella,
harvested by hand and left to raisin in wooden crates for 4-5 months. After raisining,
sugar concentration increases. At the end of February, the grapes are crushed and
left to ferment for about 25-30 days. After pressing and decanting, the wine is
transferred to barriques where malolactic fermentation takes place. After 18 months,
it is allowed to age in the bottle for another 6 months.
A soft, full-bodied wine with abundant extracts and high alcohol content which lends
a seductive, velvety sweetness. The colour is intense garnet red, with aromas of
plum, almond and chocolate and light notes of vanilla. A wine with excellent structure
and a harmonious and persistent finish.
A full-bodied wine that pairs well with traditional Veronese main courses. Excellent,
in general, with important main courses of red meat, wild game or paired with
Parmigiano Reggiano and aged cheeses. A wine for meditation, to also try with
chocolate. Serve at 18° C.
