The Amarone Classico is the result of a careful selection of only the highest quality grapes and a very rigorous drying process.
The grapes Brigaldara Amarone makes are hanging in separate clusters with good exposure to the sun. Before they go into chests to rest, the grapes are carefully selected in the vineyards. Any damaged or imperfect specimens are discarded. Only suitable grapes are dried.
After a drying process of 120 days, the grapes are pressed and fermented. All noble components of the grape skin are extracted during fermentation. The Amarone Classico is a wine that reflects the traditional production methods of the area.
Only large wooden barrels are used during the ripening process to ensure that the fruity aromas are not pushed away by the wood.
The Great Hamersma:
'Heartily! For this wine I had to create a new 'field' in the database in the subcategory alcohol percentages: debut of a 17-percent wine. The heat that took possession of Veneto in 2013 was a sign of it. Surprisingly, the freshness and the acids did not suffer. Figs, dates, plums on juice, cherry flax cherries, warm nuts from the nut bar are still given us quite a bit of pride and elan.
