The particular micro-climate, soil composition and hill-side topography of this vineyard provide all the necessary conditions for the making of a red wine of great pedigree. We have made a conscious decision to use all the grapes from this vineyard for the making of this wine, thus eliminating the selection of the best grapes for the making of an Amarone, as tends to be common practice in the Valpolicella region. We have also chosen not to employ the currently fashionable technique of “ripasso” which involves macerating the must of another wine with the pressings of Amarone as we feel the grapes are of such a high quality that this “corrective” measure is unnecessary.
