Description

The vineyards are located on the hill known as “Ravazzol”, an area with an exceptional vocation for viticulture due to the local climatic conditions and an ideal altitude ranging from 200 to 300m above sea level. The average vine age, more than 60 years, and the naturally low yields, 5-6 tonnes/hectare, also contribute to the quality of the grapes we are able to harvest from these vineyards.

Only in rare vintages when the climatic conditions enable the perfect ripening of grapes while maintaining elevated levels of acidity, which will guarantee the wine of a long life, do we make an Amarone Riserva from our “Ravazzol” vineyard.

The wine is fermented in a 5000 litre oak vat with wild yeasts and 60 days of skin contact. The wine is then aged for 8 years in a 2000 litre oak vat.

Tasting Notes:
Rich and complex, it is a striking wine for its elegance and finesse, qualities that only exceptional Amarone is able to express.
