you can drink.
(Luis Fernando Olaverri)
The Greeks made wine in Valpolicella even before the Romans arrived – and the name itself is thought to be a mash up of Latin and Greek meaning “Valley of Cellars.” The region has always enjoyed strong local demand for its light, aromatic red wines made from native grapes Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella. At the Roman times they produced sweet wine Retico, the current Recioto. A sweet and harmonious, full wine, produced with the drying of the bunches. The transformation came in the early 1900s.
Why is it called Amarone?
Legend says it happened by chance, perhaps due to a mistake or to a hot winter, the entire fermentation process took place in one Recioto tank, transforming a large quantity of sugar into alcohol, giving life to a powerful and vigorous wine, bitter and very tannic, totally different from Recioto.
They called this wine Amarone that means “bitter”; from the sweet wine excellent Recioto to the dry red wine tasty but strong tannins with a more marked bitter component.
Is bottled in Valpantena area by a selected wine cooperative of vine growers.
The quality have achieved excellent levels thanks to commitment and care over the entire production cycle, where tradition and technological innovation blend together.
