Ready for a taste of Amarone wine

Amarone and Valpolicella DOC wine

Calibrated mix of Rondinella, Corvina, Corvinone, Molinara and Oseleta grapes, the Valpolicella DOC wine has a typical bouquet of aromas among which the morello cherry stands out, more or less ripe depending on the aging of the wine.

The production area (the province of Verona up to almost Lake Garda) has been a wine-growing area at least since the time of the Romans. Nowadays the vineyards, with their sinuous design and changing color according to the seasons, cover the low hills and valleys. Here you can enjoy pleasant e-bike rides or short walks, alternated with wine tasting.

The tasting usually includes the route of: Valpolicella, Valpolicella Superiore, Ripasso and Amarone.

The latter, Amarone della Valpolicella, is the most prestigious product of the denomination. Persistent and elegant, for meditation, it is a DOCG dry passito red wine. It is produced from selected bunches, left to dry in ventilated fruit rooms for about 4 months and only subsequently vinified. The wine must then be aged for at least 3 years in oak barrels.
