CALCAROLE, Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva DOCG

CALCAROLE Amarone Riserva is only produced in the best vintages and in limited quantities.

Calcarole is a terraced vineyard (marogne) up to 230 m above sea level, in Negrar di Valpolicella in the heart of Classico area. It is a location with a particularly warm microclimate, calcareous soil and beneficial south west exposure.

Sourced from mature vines, with a natural low production, the grapes are harvested by hand when they are at the ideal ripeness to undergo the drying process in the nearby cellar. The hand-selected grapes are naturally dried for a few months in boxes and then fermented before the wine undergoes a long maturation in oak barrels.
