AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO D.O.C.G.

Characteristics:

A prestigious wine, born from a meticulous selection of red grapes typical of Valpolicella Classica.

The grapes are hand-harvested at the peak of maturity; with great care they are partially dried (a traditional process called appassimento) in dedicated drying chambers.
