Cantina di Negrar Amarone della Valpolicella 'Le Preare' DOCG
A typical Amarone, high in flavour due to the use of the raisined grapes and the two-year maturation. With notes of cherry, cinnamon and chocolate in the nose. This wine also has a DOCG label, and thus meets the highest standards that an Amarone can meet.
What is an Amarone: An Amarone from Valpolicella, what is that exactly? An Amarone is a dry red wine that is made from raisined-out grapes, a process also known as 'apassimento' in Italian, which literally means 'withering'. The grapes are harvested late in the season (mid-October) and then dried on mats or special climate chambers, losing 30-40% of their volume. This makes the wine more intense and deeper in both taste and colour.
