Notes from the producer:

"The Azienda Agricola Cà la Bionda is situated in the commune of Marano di Valpolicella, in the heart of the historically “classic” zone of the Valpolicella. The winery was founded in 1902 by Pietro Castellani (namesake of the current owner) and is now run by the fourth generation of the family represented by brothers Alessandro, the winemaker, and Nicola, the viticulturalist.

Our wines are faithful expressions of our land and of the Marano valley. We only work with native grapes and we only use traditional winemaking processes. The winery has been certified organic since 2016 and in 2008, along with other like-minded producers, contributed to the formation of the FIVI association: Federazione Italiana Vignaioli Indipendenti. The FIVI represents a growing group of vignerons who personally follow the entire wine-making process: they grow and vinify their own grapes, and bottle and market their own wine."

Winemaking
After picking the grapes are dried in small wooden crates until December. During this time every berry looses about 40% of its weight due to the loss of water from dehydration, physical and chemical transformations in the grape also occur and contribute to the wine’s unique aromas and flavours. This Amarone is fermented in stainless steel tanks and is then left to age for 42 months in 3000 litre oak barrels.
