AMARONE della Valpolicella Classico “FIRMUS” DOCG
Amarone Classico “FIRMUS” from the Latin language “strong – full bodied – robust” was Francesco’s first bet, who conceived it by making a change to the firm, run up until then by his father Renzo (Cencio for friends).
Grapes are selected by skilled and expert hands in the first weeks of harvest, then left to dry for about 3 months.
Equally experienced hands transform these precious grapes into a traditional wine, that is, at the same time, modern as well.
