Quantity

Amarone “Terre di San Zeno” is a blend of Valpolicella traditional grapes, which are picked only after a careful selection of the ripest clusters on the vines and placed to undergo the appassimento process, inducing air to dry out the grapes. This process lasts up to 4 months. The crushing takes place only at the beginning of the year following the harvest, with a very long fermentation, 25 – 30 days, due both to the temperature of the season (February – March) and to the naturally high alcohol level of the must.
After a long maturation in stainless steel tanks, then in oak barrels and in bottle, Amarone is ready to be tasted and it will be perfect for at least 10 – 15 years.
