Vinification The grape varieties for this cuvée are Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta. The grapes come from vineyards with dry, loamy and calcareous soils. The climate is Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. After alcoholic fermentation, a second fermentation takes place for around 20 days on the still-warm Amarone marc. In this ripasso process, the young wine extracts further aromas from the marc. The wine is aged for 24 months in French barrique barrels, followed by 6 months in the bottle.
