Massimago - Amarone della Valpolicella D.O.C.G.

My eyes have contemplated the spectacle of the grape harvest one hundred and twenty-seven times. I have talked enough about the moonlight . Don’t ask me about anything else. Just listen to the voice of the vines when there is no longer a breath of wind. I am Massimago.

“The bunches were swollen and full of juice, the heavy rainfall that had characterised 2010 had brought about a vigorous growth which required a lot of work in the vineyard and a lot of care and attention in laying down the grapes for the drying process. This year, as always in the never-ending confrontation between Man and Nature, will be remembered as a victory against all the odds. The perfect combination should be… to sip it with someone who is very dear to you.”

Vinification Process

The grapes, once they have been carefully selected by hand, are placed in flat wooden trays and left to dry for 80 days in our special storage sheds where humidity and temperature are strictly controlled. During vinification, the cold maceration period is extended for 5 days. The prolonged contact with the skins favours the extraction of the rich primary fruit aromas. The malolactic fermentation takes place quickly and is carried out partly in French oak barriques and partly in a 20 hectolitre barrel in our cellars which lie deep in the rock below our house. The ageing process continues for 2 years in wood and a further 12 months in the bottle.
