Pieropan Amarone della Valpolicella


Amarone, synonymous with Valpolicella, is a new and exciting challenge for the Pieropan estate and was born from a desire to see if the Cellore d’Illasi vineyards could compete with the unique terroir of Valpolicella.
The Amarone is the realisation of the family ’s dream to produce a powerful red wine, rich and structured but with the characteristic Pieropan balance, elegance and finesse.
