Product guide note

Amarone is made in a slightly unusual way. The grapes are traditionally harvested and then dried on straw mats before being made into wine. This concentrates the flavour and the result is a rich, complex, raisiny wine.

Production information

Producer: Nicolis

The wines run the whole range of the Valpolicella spectrum, from the anything but basic Classico and Classico Superiore, which establish a house style of vibrant, bright cherry fruit and ripe, elegant tannins, up to the epic dry Amarone and sweet Recioto. These latter two are made from grapes that are dried out almost to raisins in aerated lofts, concentrating the intensity of flavour.
