The Amarone Classico della Valpolicella is made from a blend of indigenous red berry grapes mainly Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella, grown using the traditional pergola training system. During manual harvesting, Secondo Marco selects only the best bunches, which are then left to dry for about 120 days. The must ferments for 45 days, macerating with the skins. The important aging phase follows, where the wine is aged for 42 months in 50 hectoliters oak barrels, and then for another 12 months in glass bottles.
The Amarone della Valpolicella Classico by Secondo Marco reveals itself with a dark and dense color, reminiscent of ruby. On the nose, it is deep, with sensations of small red and black berries, alternating with hints of spices and slightly toasted coffee. On the palate, it is full-bodied, vigorous, soft, and warm, with a consistent and flavorful profile that leverages perfectly crafted tannins that enhance the drinkability. This label represents a great character and intensity, a symbol of a great territory and a particular production method.
