DETAILS:

  • VINEYARDS: The Monte Sant’Urbano property in the municipality of Fumane: located on a hill at between 280 and 350 m./a.s.l., it benefits from excellent exposure to sunlight. The average age of the vines is high.
  • GRAPE VARIETIES: Corvina Veronese e Corvinone 70%, Rondinella 25%, Molinara 5%.
  • VINIFICATION: Manual selection of the finest bunches followed by drying for around 100 days, with a loss of about 40% in the weight of the grapes. These are destemmed and pressed and fermentation with maceration takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.
  • AGEING: 24 months in 500 l. French oak tonneaux and 18 months in medium-to-large Slavonian oak casks. Maturation in bottle for 12 months.
  • ALCOHOL CONTENT: 15% vol.
  • TASTING NOTE: A deep garnet red in color, it has an ethereal bouquet of dried fruit. On the palate, it is full-bodied, warm, mouth-filling and dry. A substantial wine of rare elegance that lends itself well to ageing.
  • Food pairing: Excellent with richly flavored main courses based on red meat, such as braised meats and game and perfect with mature cheeses. It can also be enjoyed on its own at the end of a fine dinne

ABOUT SPERI FAMILY:

The Speri Winery, one of the historical families of Valpolicella and with a story that begins in the first half of the 1800s, has now entered its seventh generation making wine from about 60 hectares of vineyards in the most select Valpolicella Classica areas.

The Speri family, if Amarone della Valpolicella is the latest born of Valpolicella wines, is one of the oldest wineries to produce this wine: the first bottles that were marketed date back to the second half of the nineteen fifties. And the Winery has always focused its greatest efforts here.
Speri produces a single Amarone, Amarone DOCG Classico Sant’Urbano.
Grapes are harvested exclusively by hand, and carefully graded to select only loosely clustered bunches, those that have the best characteristics for long natural drying on racks.
The Winery has three fruit sheds located in hill or foothill zones with good natural ventilation for mold-free drying and maintenance of the organoleptic properties of the grapes. The main fruit shed is in the center of the Speri family’s Sant’Urbano Estate, 300 m/above sea level, the perfect position that guarantees a dry climate and excellent ventilation.
Here grapes are still dried on traditional “arele” wooden and bamboo racks, well distanced one from the other.

The Speri family, in its effort to always achieve the best possible quality, does not produce Amarone during unfavorable vintages and only markets the wine when at least 12 months have elapsed after the date set by the production regulations.
