Ageing/Vinification: A rigorous selection identifies the best bunches that will be stored in “fruttaio” (Drying room). The drying process is natural, with no air conditioning, it lasts longer than 3 months and results a weight loss up to 35%. Alcoholic fermentation runs for more than a month in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature (20°C), it’s slow and complicated. A delicate delestage allows the maximum extraction of polyphenols from the skin and seeds. The wine ages in 30 hl french oak barrels for at least 5 years. After that, wine moves to stainless steel tanks for few extra month before bottling. It spends at least 1 year in bottle before the sale. The total time of winemaking for Amarone is 6 years minimum.

Vineyard: 12h single estate vineyard in Monte La Parte, located at an altitude from 300 to 350 m above sea level, located all over the top of the hill enjoying a full sun exposure. The roots lie in a calcareous and tuffaceous soil, poor of organic material A meager soil, difficult to work in which can grow superb grapes. The high minerality in the soil gives to the wine an excellent balance and complexity.
