Amarone is produced in small quantities using traditional methods.
It is made from a small selection of grapes which are left to dry until late winter in a well ventilated loft. After the harvest, the grapes are dried for about 4 months which means a loss of weight of about 50%. Fermentation is then completed at a temperature between 18°and 22°C followed by approximately 20 days soaking. Maturation is in wood with further refining in the bottle for about 3 years, before selling.
During this process of aging, in specially made barrels, the wine acquires its organoleptic characteristics and is embellished. It is rich in alcohol, glycerin, very structured and powerful, but nevertheless elegant. Quite unlike any other wine in the world. It can be stored for more than twenty years.
Serving temperature: 18-20 °C.
