The Legend says that Amarone was born because of a mistake of a cellarman, that forgot a Recioto barrel, for months in his winery. When he finally tasted it, he found out that Recioto had become something else: the wine was not sweet anymore, but it had developed had a great body and bitter hints. The name Amarone (in italian: Great Bitter), comes from this typical flavour.

 

Amarone is produced out of dry grapes; during the harvest, only the best bunches are selected for the drying process. The grapes are placed in wooden trays and dried for at least 3 months. This concentrates the sugars and allows the development of new flavours, which can be produced just through this drying process.

 

Once the process is completed, grapes are pressed and placed in steel tanks: the fermentation starts spontaneously, and continues until the sugar is completely consumed. Successively, the wine refines in steel tanks for ca. 2 years and in wooden barrels for ca. 3 years.
