Between the Lagoon, the Po Valley and the Valpollicella hills.
Amarone and Recioto
Amarone wine is a dry red wine DOGC (guaranteed and controlled designation of origin), which is only produced here: in the Valpolicella. Amarone derives its own name from the adjective “bitter” (“amaro” in Italian) that distinguishes it in flavor from its sweeter brother, the Recioto.
Amarone has a very recent and almost “random” origin. It is said that the Amarone was born from a forgotten barrel of Recioto, in which the natural yeasts present in the wine continued to ferment and subsequently transformed all the sugar into alcohol, making the sweet Recioto into a dry wine.
The experience has an approximate duration of about 4 hours.
