Amarone of Valpolicella
When Amarone della Valpolicella is mentioned, Verona instantly comes to mind. Amarone is crafted from the fermentation of dried grapes from the typical Valpolicella vineyards. These grape varieties include:
Additionally, up to 25% of non-aromatic black grape varieties are allowed, authorized for the province of Verona, of which up to 15% can be generic.
It covers the entire foothills of the province of Verona, extending from Lake Garda to almost the border of the province of Vicenza. This region consists of a series of valleys and hills that merge into the plains, forming a “hand-like” shape. The climate and soil in this area play a fundamental role.
The protection from the northern Lessini mountain range, the proximity of Lake Garda, and the south-facing exposure of the hilly and valley terrain collectively result in a mild and moderately rainy climate.
Carefully selected grapes from the vineyards are harvested in small crates and are dried for approximately 3-4 months in dry, well-ventilated spaces.
Once the ideal level of drying is reached, the grapes are pressed and placed in thermo-conditioned steel tanks for fermentation.
Fermentation continues for about 30 days to ensure the full development of the wine’s high alcohol content.
Following initial evolution in cement for several months, allowing for the completion of malolactic fermentation, the wine begins its aging process in medium to large oak barrels for about 3 years. After bottling, the wine rests for at least 6 months in the bottle.
The Amarone of Vallepolicella 2018 has an intense red color with garnet reflections. On the nose, it presents fruity aromas with spicy notes. The palate offers a full and velvety flavor.
It pairs well with significant dishes such as red meats, game, and aged, spicy cheeses.
