PRODUCTION PROCESS: The Amarone is a noble wine produced from
just the best bunches, collected by hand and placed in small crates for 3 to 4 months
to go through the process of the so-called “appassimento” withering or drying
of the grapes. This process concentrates the sugar content from 25% to 30%
and enables other natural chemical processes to take place inside the drying
berries. The dried grapes are then turned into thick must composed of the skin
and the juice and fermented slowly for about 15 to 20 days. The wine is then
separated and placed in stainless steel tanks, where the malolactic fermentation
is completed. After this process, the wine is then placed in small oak barrels to
mature for 12 to 18 months.
