Amarone della Valpolicella is a rich, luscious, historically labor-intensive wine made in the Valpolicella region near Verona. This wine is made from the same grapes as Valpolicella: mainly Corvina, secondary Rondinella and Molinara grapes.

To achieve full ripeness, the grapes are left on the vine, something winemakers refer to as a “long hang time,” which means they’ll be picked towards the end of harvest.

The best bunches of grapes are then “dried or raisined in special drying lodges,” according to the Oxford Companion To Wine. To achieve this, the grapes are spread out on mats, or strung up from the ceiling, but many modern producers now dry the grapes in temperature and humidity controlled warehouses, which minimizes the risk of damage or mold to the grapes. Drying the grapes in this fashion forces them to shrivel, therefore concentrating sugars and flavors. When the grapes are finally crushed and fermented, the resulting wine is opulent and full-bodied. Amarone della Valpolicella wines are aged for a minimum two years before release.

Ca’linverno Rosso Veronese is a unique wine which born from an intuition of Diego Cottini, Monte Zovo founder. It is the result of a long and accurate productive protocol, invented more than 20 years ago by the Cottini Family.

Following no more than his intuition and the promptings of nature, Diego Cottini created this stunningly unique wine. Left on the vine until the first winter frosts, the grapes are filled with the most pervasive sensations. As balanced, structured and intense as the passion that inspires it.

Corvina VeroneseThe wines of Northern Italy include some of the most well known red wines in the country including Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Amarone and Valpolicella.

Arguably, the two most important regions in Northern Italy are Piedmont in the northwest, and Veneto in the northeast. Red wines from these regions range from some of the most expensive and sought after in all of Italy to great value red wines.
Nebbiolo produces some of the most exclusive and expensive red wines in Italy, including Barolo and Barbaresco. However, these sought after wines come with a hefty price tag.

Dolcetto and Barbera from Piedmont offer relative value. Dolcetto is planted on less desirable vineyard sites, and produces fruit-forward, great value wines that are meant to be consumed within 1-2 years of bottling. Barbera is a high yield variety with low tannins and high acidity.

In Veneto, Valpolicella reigns supreme as its own distinct viticultural zone. There are five different tiers within this wine category ranging from inexpensive and light-bodied Valpolicella Classico, to pricey Amarone.

Red wines from Valpolicella are typically based on Corvina, with Rondinella, and Molinara rounding out these blended wines.
