Vinification and maturation
The best grapes are selected from 45 hectares of vines. The grapes are placed in small wooden boxes and dried in the air. In 5 months, the grapes lose about 40% of their weight before pressing (100 kg of grapes yield 20 to 22 liters of Amarone). The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at very low temperatures. The wine stays from 2 to 4 years in oak barrels of Slavonia with a capacity of 20 to 25 hl, depending on the vintage. The wine is then bottled and placed in the tank at 15 meters in the basement and this for 7 to 9 months.
