The Amarone is a companion for pleasurable contemplation, as it fulfills its purpose, therefore it is best savored alone. Crafted from carefully selected Corvina, Corvinone, Croatina, Oseleta, and Rondinella grapes from the vineyards of Cellore, a hamlet of Illasi, this wine embodies the unique terroir. The vineyard’s surface spans 1 hectare, nestled at an altitude of 220 meters above sea level, where the vines, 20 years old, thrive under the nurturing embrace of the sun from east to west.
The viticulture practices of this exquisite wine are meticulous, with a density of 13,000 vines per hectare and a trellis training system known as “spalliera” (guyot). The grapes are harvested by hand in October, capturing the optimal ripeness. Following a meticulous appassimento process lasting 70 to 90 days, the fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures with selected yeast strains, specifically Saccaromyces cerevisiae.
To further enhance its character, the Amarone della Valpolicella Ferragù 2015 Riserva undergoes a remarkable aging process. Seventy-two months of refinement take place in both American and French oak barriques, imparting depth and complexity. Finally, a twelve-month maturation in the bottle brings forth the culmination of its excellence.
With its alcohol content of 17.50°, this Amarone pairs impeccably with moments of solitary indulgence. Allow yourself to immerse in the extraordinary journey that awaits within each bottle, and savor the unrivaled fragrance and flavors of this exceptional Amarone della Valpolicella Ferragù 2015 Riserva.
