Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOC: 
• Amarone is only produced in exceptional years
• In truly exceptional years an Amarone Riserva is produced, a personal barrel selection by the family
• Careful selection of grapes during harvest
• After harvest, grapes sit in wooden boxes or on rush mats
• Careful attention is paid to the positioning of the grapes so the appassimento can occur naturally
• Noble rot starts to appear in November and develops mostly in January
• Grapes are pressed at the end of January and after 20 days of maceration, alcoholic fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts
• Fermentation lasts 45 days
• Wine is then racked and ages in Slavonian oak barrels for seven years
• Alcoholic fermentation continues during this aging period creating a dry wine
