Amarone della Valpolicella is the unquestioned king of the wines of Verona. It is obtained via the ancient production of Recioto which then became dry and bitter purely by chance; as a resultsince the beginning of the 20th century it has been called "Amarone", from the adjective "amaro" meaning "bitter". The unique and unmistakable feature of this wine is its' production by original grapes of Valpolicella: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara, which are considered a great treasure of this area. Another unique characteristic of this wine is the process of vinification: grapes are dried till February - March; it is a fine example of dry red wine refined in wooden barrels. Amarone is a wine of great importance, since it is the product of a rare micro-climate, exclusive vines and special wine making techniques.
