The Villa Fura Amarone della Valpolicella is an bold Italian red wine created from dried grapes, is rich and deep. Dark, inky cherry flavours with liquorice and prune undertones.
The sustainably-managed vineyards are planted on ideal south-facing limestone slopes giving ideal exposure to the sun, at around 400 metres above sea level, providing freshness and balance. The oldest vines were planted in 1972 and are trained on a combination of traditonal pergola and conventional guyot systems.
The grapes are hand-harvested and given a relatively short controlled fermentation to produce a Valpolicella, then refermented later and longer on Amarone skins in the traditional manner to increase richness, alcohol, sugar and complexity. The wine is then aged in a combination of old and new French and American barriques, large old oak barrels and a 20% in stainless steel.
