AMARONE della Valpolicella Classico “RISERVA” DOCG
Amarone Classico “RISERVA” is produced from four Valpolicella grape varieties, cultivated high on hillside terraces. Only the best and most mature clusters are selected for this wine. The grapes are placed directly onto small open racks and brought to an open sided building where they are dried by the cool breezes of autumn and winter until the following February. Only produced in the best vintages in limited number, it is the result of a careful selection of the grapes, a long drying process and refinement in French and American oak barriques for about 48 months. Final long ageing in the bottle. It is an important wine for special occasions or as meditation wine.
