Winemaker Notes

A very small, family run operation in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico zone, in Marano,with a total production of 70,000 bottles. Great care is taken in the vines and the vineyards look a little bit more like gardens. The selection of grapes for the Amarone come from vines planted 30-40 years ago using the region’s old Pergola Veronese system. They use only small oak barrels to age the wines and have no international grape varieties, basing all their wines on Corvina and small percentages of the other two local grapes. Its elegance and strong character make this wine a fantastic gift. So if you're looking to offer it to someone, we've bundled it in a gift set with luxury chocolate and beautiful wrapping.

The Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is obtained from the best grapes of every harvest, left to wither on wooden grids and pressed in January. At least two years of ageing and subsequent refinement in bottle result in a ruby red wine with an intense bouquet of cherries and preserved Morello cherries in alcohol, with a robust body and a particularly well-balanced flavor.
