  • When faced with a great oenological classic like this Amarone della Valpolicella Sant'Ambrogio there is little to say. It only needs to be tasted. Because it is a wine of great prestige, produced with the best grapes from the Sant'Ambrogio vineyard, located right in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica area, the most historic and vocated zone for the production of this wine. It is the result of a slow and careful processing of the grapes, especially Corvina and Rondinella, cultivated using the traditional Veronese pergoletta system, which, at the expense of very heavy work in the vineyard, makes it possible to obtain grapes of superior quality. The bunches are harvested at the beginning of October, when there is already a slight over-ripening. After the long drying process, during which the grapes lose much of their weight concentrating aromas and sugars, maceration and fermentation, the wine is aged for a long time, first in large barrels and then in barriques. The result is a wine characterised by an intense, dark colour, with heady aromas of cherries in spirit and liquorice. It is a wine that calls for very tasty pairings, such as stewed game or very old or spicy cheeses.

    'The Aldegheri family since 1956 in the heart of Valpolicella'. One reads this on the website of the beautiful Veronese company that has been producing and processing the good wines of its territory for more than 60 years. The family character of the Aldegheri company, and the perfect coordination between technology and love for nature and its fruits, have allowed it to achieve a high level of quality over the years. Its products testify to the result of special attention to the vineyards, a rigorous and careful selection of grapes and constant improvement of winemaking technologies. Today, the company can count on around 50 hectares of vineyards. Of these, part are directly managed and part are cultivated by historical vine growers, who have been linked to the winery since the beginning. For the most part, these are hillside vineyards with good exposures, such as those at the foot of the S. Giorgio district, famous for its Romanesque parish church, from which the prestigious Amarone is obtained. Or those of Grola, one of the best vantage points in Valpolicella, where the technique of appassimento has been practised since Roman times, and where today the best Recioto is produced. The main grape varieties used are Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara, the three basic grapes for all the typical Valpolicella wines, but also Cabernet, Merlot, Garganega, Pinot and Dindarella, the autochthonous variety par excellence.
