The slopes facing the sunset are the best ones in Valpolicella Classica for
producing high-quality Amarone. Here, where the day is longer, the vines
that face Lake Garda benefit from the reflection of its light and from its mild
climate. Amarone is a unique wine due to its origin, ancient grape varieties
and production method (vinification of grapes that have been semi-dried for
3-4 months on bamboo racks).
Grape varieties: 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Molinara
Deep ruby red color with mahogany reflections on the edges. Intense and highly developed
nose with hints of ripe fruit and cherry jam. Clean on the palate with a delicious smoothness
followed by the familiar hints of warm alcohol and obvious complexity to the structure. Long and
delicate finish with touches of cinnamon and vanilla.
Amarone is a full-bodied wine for grilled or roasted red meats, game, and tasty and
piquant cheeses, like parmesan.
