From the vineyard of the same name, on the hills of Valpolicella Classica, comes this noble Amarone that, due to its high quality and its extraordinary elegance, we have promoted as a reserve wine. The soil, the microclimate and the selection of drying grapes used, all contribute to the richness of aromas and to the vigorous structure of this wine
