Single vineyard 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 the heart of Negrar in the Valpolicella Classico area. It is a location with a particularly warm micro climate, 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 Pojega 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.
