Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

37.20

Amarone is one of the oldest Italian wines.

In the fourth century AD J.-C., Cassiodorus, king of the Goths, describes a wine called Acinatico. Probably by chance, the production of a completely dry Recioto gave birth to this wine.

After obtaining DOC in 1968, Amarone represents a small portion of Valpolicella’s production. Almost nothing has changed since the Cassiodorus era and the production method has remained artisanal.

Amarone is a wine rich in alcohol, glycerin and resveratrol, a wine that can not be compared to any other in the world, even in terms of longevity.

Garnet red in color, with intense aroma and dry flavor, it goes well with game dishes, grilled meats and aged cheeses. Served outside the meal, it is an extraordinary meditation wine.
