Amarone - alongside Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino - is one of the three most famous and best Italian DOCG red wines. It is pressed from dried grapes, which results in a high concentration of the grape material in the must and a very intense aroma combination.
Due to its very complex structure, Amarone red wine has excellent maturation and storage potential.
Many wine experts consider Amarone the most unusually unique top wine of Italy. It comes from the Italian winegrowing region Valpolicella Classico in Venice and is the dry finished variant of Recioto - one further DOCG wine from the region, which is also produced from dry grapes. Various grape varieties are used in the production of both red wines, specifically the Corvina, Corvinone Veronese, Colinara and Rondinella varieties.
