Amarone Classico DOCG

Amarone Classico DOCG

Produced in our Costalunga Estate, in the Classical area of Valpolicella, a land full of tradition and well known for its wine and food culture, after a careful manual selection, the Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta grapes are left to rest in small boxes and then gently pressed to create a wine of undoubted quality with great complexity that gets better with age.

GRAPE VARIETY

80% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, 10% Oseleta and Croatina.

VINIFICATION

after the harvest, the grapes are carefully selected, and the healthiest ripest fruit is placed in cases in a well-ventilated room to raisin for 3-4 months. After this period the grapes are pressed, left on the skins for 15-20 days at the temperature of 23°-25°C, and fermented till becoming the delicious wine that Amarone is. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 36 months.

GASTRONOMICAL COMBINATIONS

It is recommended with roasted meat, grilled meat and mature cheeses.
