Amarone della Valpolicella, today unanimously considered as the most prized of Veronese wines and as one of the most important Italian red wines, appreciated by the most demanding consumers all over the world, was born from the evolution of Recioto, one of the oldest wines in the history.
In the fourth century after Christ, Cassiodorus, minister of Theodoric, king of the Visigoths, describes in a letter a wine obtained with a special grape drying technique, then called Acinatico, produced in that territory called Valpolicella (name that according to some would derive from Latin "Vallis-polis-celle" and could mean "Valleys of many cellars").
Amarone della Valpolicella is a wine with a deep red color possibly tending to garnet with aging.
The perfume recalls dried fruit, tobacco and spices, also thanks to the noble molds created during the drying process. The flavor of great intensity with notes of dried fruit, dry but very soft; has strong personality and can exceed twenty years of conservation.
It goes perfectly with red meat dishes and seasoned and tasty cheeses.
