VINIFICATION and MATURATION
After the grapes have been dried, they are pressed and then the alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, for a period of about a month. Subsequently the Amarone is left to mature for at least two and a half years in 35 hl Slavonian oak casks and for 6 months in tonneaux.
This is a wine for serving on special occasions, with game, red meat and mature cheeses.
