Year: 2011
Sugar: 6 gr/L
GRAPES: Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara
AGED: This wine is aged in small oak barrels from 20 to 50 hectoliters.
The legend recites that a producer wanting to do the Recioto with Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara desiccated grapes, forgot the Recioto in the barrels. The wine continued to ferment, all its sugars were transformed to alcohol and it lost its sweetness. For this reason it was named “Amarone” (big bitter).

VITICULTURE

The Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella grapes, are the base for the production of the great Verona wines, such as Valpolicella, Ripasso and Amarone. The vineyards are located on the hills not very far from Verona at an altitude of about 150 to 250 metres above sea level. The grapes are harvested manually and placed in wooden cases, this is usually is done at dawn or at late in the evening, in order to avoid the intense heat that the grapes may suffer during the day.

WINEMAKING

The process of desiccation not only concentrates the juices within the grape but also increases the skin contact of the grapes. The drying process further metabolizes the acids within the grape and creates a polymerization of the tannins in the skin which contribute to the overall balance of the finished wine. The length of the drying process is typically 120 days. The most evident consequence of this process is the loss of weight: 35 to 45% for Corvina grapes, 30 to 40% for Molinara and 27 to 40% for Rondinella. Following drying, end of January/beginning of February, the grapes are crushed and go through a dry low temperature fermentation process which can last up to 30/50 days. After fermentation, the wine is then aged initially in stainless steel tanks and successively in small barrels, from 20 to 50 hectoliters.

FOOD PAIRING
