Grown in the rolling hills of Valpolicella and produced in a unique style distinct to this region, this wine is fantastically delicious and historic. The Farina family produces this wine from the traditional grape from this appellation, the Corvina grape, with a small percentage of Rondinella and Molinara added for color and tannins. The winemaking process used is from ancient times and can be a painstakingly slow process, but rewarding as the result is a beautifully balanced red wine. After harvest, the grapes are dried for three to four months, allowing the grapes to become sweeter, more concentrated, and intense in flavor. The grapes lose 30-40% of their weight during this process, meaning that it takes twice the amount of grapes to make a single bottle of Amarone.
This wine's very complex bouquet consists of black cherries, chocolate, leather, and orange zest. It pairs well with grilled meats, rich pastas, truffled cheeses, or a nice cigar! Decant for at least 40 minutes for the best expression of flavors in this wine.
