Vinification The Amarone della Valpolicella is obtained through an ancient method called “appassimento”. Only the best grapes are selected and then dried naturally for 3 to 4 months in drying rooms called “fruttai”. During this process the grapes dehydrate, losing 40-50% of their weight, with a consequent concentration of all of their substances. In January the grapes are pressed and the must stays in contact with the skins during all the fermentation process, which lasts about 30 days. The wine ages in French oak barriques and tonneaux for a period that may vary from 36 to 42 months. The wine is released in the market 5 years after the harvest.
