Amarone wine is created by drying the grapes that are laid to rest after a first careful selection of the best bunches during the harvest; the best ripened, and above all bunches with fewer grapes.
A second selection is carried out in the grape drying facility called “fruttaio” where we can control the correct integrity and state of health of the fruit. The grapes continue drying for a period before being pressed..
Garnet red colour. Intense aroma, ethereal and spicy. Soft dry and “smooth” flavour, with a vigorous full body.
We are a family winery. We are located in a small village called Cengia from the name of the nearby rocks on the top of the hill. Cengia is located in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica in San Pietro in Cariano, halfway between the city of Verona and Garda Lake.
The winery was born towards the end of World War II thanks to grandpa Giordano and it continued with his son Lorenzo and the collaboration of his wife Adriana who led the company to sell the first bottles in 1986. Nowadays this tradition goes on thanks to the children Giordano and Tiliana.
Pairing Suggestions: Ideal for main and second courses such as roasts grilled and red meat in general as well as with seasoned cheeses.
