Amarone is the exaltation of the senses. It is a dry wine which, due to its abundant extract and high alcohol content, gives a seductive illusion of sweetness.
WINE DESCRIPTION

It comes from a blend of 70% Corvina - 20% Rondinella - 10% Molinara grapes grown on predominantly red and brown soils on detritus, calcareous marl and basalts. The grapes are carefully selected, harvested by hand and placed in boxes. The drying of the grapes continues for about 3 months, traditional fermentation on the skins with maceration of 4-5 weeks. Aging takes place in oak barrels and barriques for 3 years, then rests in the bottle.

CLIMATE

In Valpolicella, the anomalous climatic trend saw a dry and harsh winter, with little rainfall only in February. The frosts in April caused limited damage. In general, temperatures below average were recorded and production, especially in the hills, underwent a sharp decrease (about 15-20% less). Thanks to the temperature changes of the second decade of August and the rains of September, the grapes reached the cellar perfectly ripe. The acidity of the wines is normal, while as regards alcohol it is lower than in 2016.

TASTING NOTES
