Vinification of the Masi Agricola Mazzano Amarone della Valpolicella Classico
The powerful Mazzano Amarone della Valpolicella Classico from Italy is a cuvée made from the Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella grape varieties. The Mazzano Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this Italian wine exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underlines the success of wines from the Old World. The fact that the Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella grapes thrive under the influence of a warm climate also has a very strong influence on the ripeness of the grapes. Among other things, this results in particularly well-ripened grapes and a rather high alcohol content in the wine. After being harvested by hand, the grapes are transported to the winery as quickly as possible. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in small wooden vats at controlled temperatures. At the end of fermentation, the Mazzano Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is aged for several months in French and Slavonian oak barrels. The maturation in wooden barrels is followed by considerable bottle ageing, which makes this red wine even more complex.
