Amarone Case Vecie borrows its name from the homonymous vineyard located in Grezzana – Valpantena. An extraordinary plot of land planted with vines where altitude and exposition enable the grapes to undergo a slow and constant ripening, even during the hardest years. The late harvesting period enables us to put the grapes to dry in a colder period of the year, undergoing a slower and longer drying process. Amarone Case Vecie is a wine that is designed to enhance the natural characteristics of a high altitude climate: a true Amarone “Vigne Alte” – a high-hill Amarone.
The low temperature of the drying process allows the characteristics of this cold climate vineyard to be enhanced in the Amarone Case Vecie.
Garnet red. Aromas of fruit jam, warm spices, cherries, Moreno cherries, dried fruit and hints of tobacco and cocoa. This wine is full bodied, complex, elegant and velvety.
Vinification: Grapes for the Amarone are selected in the vineyard and placed in crates. They are then left in the fruit drying loft and allowed to dry for several months. The wine is left in contact with the grape skins during fermentation. The wine is pumped over twice a day with delestage half way through the fermentation process.
Ageing: 2 years in barriques and 3rd year in 25 hL oak barrels.
