AMARONE

della Valpolicella

Who is Amarone for me?

“He walked slowly along the edge of the snow-covered orchard, savoring the warmth of his pipe. The sweet and spicy scent of tobacco wafted on the cool evening air. He closed his eyes and imagined next summer, when the cherries would be sweet and ripe. This walk was his favorite part of the day.”

Amarone della Valpolicella is the most typical Veronese red wine created out of the lengthy grape drying process. Amarone della Valpolicella is the most important wine produced by myself. The hill and its very thin and calcareous soils express all they can render in this wine.
To me Amarone della Valpolicella is a wine for relaxing at the end of the day and ideal for letting the mind wander on a short rein from thought to thought. For meditation.
