AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA DOC

Amarone is a noble wine produced with the best bunches hand-picked and then laid flat in special wooden boxes for a 4-month drying process. Thanks to this method, the grapes increase their sugar concentration by 25-30%. Between December and January, the grapes are crushed and then the fermentation starts. After 15-20 days the must is transferred into stainless steel tanks. Once the malolactic fermentation is completed, the wine matures in small oak barrels for 18-24 months before bottling.

drying

How do you reach perfection? Choosing only the best quality of the grapes available. The attempts have lasted centuries to get to the vineyards of today and the choice is made among the best clusters that then will give rise to Amarone, a wine noble and known all over the world.
The path of these clusters from the plant to your goblet is fascinating: kept in drying for three or four months in special plateaux, are crushed only after inspection, and authorization by the Authority in place (Siquria) in December/January, when the grape is Withered and the weight fell by about 30% concentrating the sugar content resulting in an increase in the alcoholic degree.
It is then passed to the steel tanks where the malolactic fermentation takes place and only at that point the wine is greeted by the barriques for a time that comes out from two to three years. Period during which a magia….la birth of the Amarone occurs.
