Description

Embark on a journey of prestige and indulgence with Aldegheri Amarone della Valpolicella. This extraordinary wine is crafted exclusively from grapes grown in hillside vineyards, where only the finest fruits are carefully selected for the drying process in our fruit cellar. After this meticulous process, it is aged for an extended period in oak barrels and finally bottled in our underground cellars.

The grapes used in Aldegheri Amarone della Valpolicella are a blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, and other indigenous or recommended grape varieties. Each grape adds its own unique character, resulting in a harmonious and balanced blend that tantalizes the senses.

The vineyards that nurture these exceptional grapes are located in the northwestern part of the hilly arc of Verona, in the historic Valpolicella area. With an average age of 20 years and some Corvinas reaching 35 years, the vineyard’s mature vines impart depth and complexity to the wine. The soils, a mix of red and brown on marls of Cretaceous age, and red compact soils on Eocene limestone, contribute to the wine’s distinctive terroir.

The harvest takes place in early October when the grapes have reached optimal ripeness, with a slight over-ripening. Each grape is painstakingly handpicked, selecting only the best bunches for drying. This meticulous attention to detail ensures that only the highest quality grapes are used in the winemaking process.

The vinification process begins with careful drying, followed by destemming and soft crushing of the grapes. The must and marc then ferment for an extended period, extracting the full potential of flavors. After racking, the wine is transferred to special large oak barrels for aging, a process that lasts over 3 years. A small portion, approximately 15%, is matured in barriques, lending unique characteristic notes that complement the overall profile. Finally, the aged Amarone is bottled and released to the market when it has completed its full maturation.

Aldegheri Amarone della Valpolicella presents itself as a ruby red wine with garnet tones. On the nose, you’ll encounter tertiary notes of oak and walnut, followed by hints of blueberry and morello cherry. The palate offers a full-bodied experience with excellent structure and a tannic finish. As you savor each sip, flavors of cherry and morello cherry linger, creating a truly memorable experience.

Pair this exceptional wine with roasts and game to elevate your dining experience, or indulge in its perfect companionship with aged and/or spicy cheeses. To fully unlock the nuances of Aldegheri Amarone della Valpolicella wine, we recommend uncorking a few hours earlier or decanting to allow it to oxygenate and fully express its refined flavors.

Served at a temperature of 18-20°C, this wine embraces you with an alcohol content of 15.5% vol. Allow yourself to be captivated by the allure and prestige of Aldegheri della Valpolicella Amarone wine, and savour each moment of this extraordinary journey. Cheers to exceptional taste and unforgettable memories.
