Amarone differs from Valpolicella for two simple reasons. The first concerns the duration of the drying period, which in this case lasts for three long months, instead of one and a half. The second instead alludes to the age of the vine. In fact, our company philosophy provides that, to produce Amarone, only the grapes harvested from vineyards over ten years old must be used. The younger vines are then used only for the production of Valpolicella. Except for these two differences and some other small variations on the percentage of the varieties used, it can be said that these two wines are almost identical, in the sense that the process underlying their production and aging is exactly the same. That said, Amarone stands out from its younger brother in terms of power and elegance. Undoubtedly, the complexity of this wine is higher than that of Valpolicella and places it in that category of wines that we usually define as "meditation". Complex aromatic notes, ranging from black cherries, blueberries, chocolate, foreshadow that sumptuous expression of ripe fruit that flows in the mouth with intrusive persistence. The finish closes with sinuous shades of truffle, tobacco and new leather. It is a wine with still unknown potential, but whose depth bodes well for a long, very long evolution ahead of it.
