"A wine of extreme finesse, the 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella is utterly captivating. Dark red cherries, plums, cloves and new leather are some of the many notes that blossom in the 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella. Pliant and deeply expressive, the 2011 is firing on all cylinders today. I don't see the 2011 as a long-term ager, but it is absolutely gorgeous today and should continue to drink well for another decade, give or take." –July 2015, Antonio Galloni

The grapes are dried for 2 months before they are pressed and fermented. Following this, fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, with the end of fermentation taking place in barrique (altogether for 30-40 days). Malolactic fermentation is completed and the wine is aged in small French barrels (50% new) for 26 months, followed by 24 months in the bottle.
