Amarone Riserva “Ca ‘Florian” is made with selected grapes from one of the oldest vineyards that Tommasi family owns. The grapes (75% Corvina, 10% Rondinella and 5% Corvinone) come from vines with an average age of 20 years. Amarone comes from the respect for the nature and the wise cultivation of the vines, from a patient and painstaking selection of grapes and a strong bond with the tradition.
After harvesting and manual selection, the grapes are laid down in boxes of 5 to 6 kg and naturally dried in the Fruttaio for 4 months. The grapes are then gently pressed the following January and slowly fermented on the skins using indigenous yeasts, which takes place for about 30 days. The wine is aged first in tonneau for a year and then for 3 years in Slavonian casks and lastly aged in bottle for a year.
