della Valpolicella DOCG

The Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG is obtained with a unique technique, that has been used since Roman time, called “appassimento”. The grapes are naturally dried for 3 to 4 months in the drying facility (fruttaio). During the drying process the grapes dehydrate losing 40-50% of their original weight with a consequent concentration of all their substances. During the month of January the grapes undergo the “pigiatura” (squeezing out the juice of the grapes) and then the fermentation process proceeds for a month. Maturation is completed in French oak barriques and tonneaux for a period that may vary from 42 to 50 months. Then the wine is aged in bottle for a year.
