Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG by Azienda Agricola Carlo Ferragù
The Amarone della Valpolicella Docg by Carlo Ferragù is a true investment for the future, capable of aging for an extended period when properly stored in the cellar. It is a wine that embodies strength, precision, and elegance, and every organoleptic component is well-defined, from the varietal and primary aromas to the secondary and tertiary notes that emerge from the long aging process spent first in wood and then in glass.
To create this exceptional Amarone, Ferragù skillfully blends native red berry grape varieties, including Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, and Oseleta. These vines have an average age of 55 years and are rooted in a subsoil characterized by a medium texture, in vineyards located at about 240 meters above sea level. The grapes are hand-selected and then left to dry for 70 days before being pressed, destemmed, and fermented in steel containers. The wine then undergoes an important maturation phase, during which it spends 36 months in American oak barrels, followed by an additional 12 months in glass after bottling.
The Amarone della Valpolicella Ferragù has a strong body and distinct personality that make it a great accompaniment to hearty dishes such as aged cheese, venison, roast, braised meat, and stew. It is also a wine to be savored in solitude, perfect for contemplative moments. When uncorking a bottle of this level, happiness is truly within reach of the glass. It is an important label to share with enthusiasts of great Italian red wines.
