AMARONE
DELLA VALPOLICELLA

RISERVA
DOCG

Production method:

The hand-selected grapes rest in large crates for about 120 days in our fruit cellars. At an altitude of 120 metres, they benefit from the natural ventilation of foothill winds through north and south facing windows. They are fermented in modern-style tanks for about 30 days at a temperature of between 16° and 20°. This is followed by approximately 36 months of maturation in medium-toasted French oak barrels and a final fining in the bottle for at least 12 months.

Production method:

Amarone Riserva is produced from the finest grapes of the best vintages only. Grapes are harvested at mid-September and selected by hand following strict criteria to bring only the most mature and perfectly healthy bunches to the drying cellar. Drying process takes place in plateaux for about 100 days in an old barn. Alcoholic fermentation, preceded by cold maceration of the berries, lasts about a month at low temperatures in steel tanks with daily pumping over. Then a maturation phase of about 36 months in new, second passage tonneaux and large oak barrels for a better complexity of the wine. Bottle aging for at least 12 months.
