Amarone vines are grown north west of Verona – between Lake Garda and Verona – in the vineyards if Valpolicella. Amarone della Valpolicella wines hold the highest Italian quality branding DOCG (Denominatione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) since 1968.
Amarone always consists of following vines:
According to the Appassimento or Recioto technique, the grapes will be air dried in good ventilated storages for 2-4 months. Hence much sugar and extractives will be left and high concentrated wines will be produced. The fermentation stops very soon and is followed by a sweet Amarone with 15 % Alc. Vol.. Some alcohol-resistend yeast will transform the remaining sugar in more alcohol if the mash gets more time to rest. A dry Amarone with 16-17% Alc. Vol. is the result. This technique is called “Miracolo dell’Amarone”.
