Italy, 15% ABV
Amarone is a full bodied, balanced and pleasant wine. The selected harvest, the drying on trellises and aging in small oak casks make it "Il vino degli Dei" (the wine of gods). The grapes are manually harvested in cases and taken directly to the drying room where, at a controlled temperature and ventilation, they are left withering from the end of October until February, so that the grapes can eliminate most of their water constitution. It is left aging in small oak casks (5 to 25 hectoliters) for a period of two years.
