The specification Riserva, according to the most recent disciplinary code, can now be given to an Amarone with a minimum aging period of four years, beginning as of the first November of the year of the harvest. The extract content of an Amarone Riserva cannot be less than 32 g/l.

All of the Amarone from Corteforte have the advantage of a much longer aging and refining period than required, as well as an extract content above the standard.

In order to produce Amarone strictly with the recognition of Riserva, Corteforte chose to re-request the certification and to apply this indication exclusively to the utmost top products of any particular year. Only in this way could we differentiate and truly demonstrate the luster of this selection. Determined by the strict selection of the top bunches; harvested at the perfect time of maturation and followed by an aging period of at least 36 months in the barrels, as well as an additional 12 months in our cellars.


ABOUT CORTEFORTE

Corteforte was built at the beginning of the 15th century, in a strategic point of the valley of Fumane, in a district of the town denominated Osan. Originally the fortification was made of four lateral towers, connected by high stone walls and proved to be an important defense against North Barbarian invasions. As the sights and sounds of battle long faded into history, time and extensive reconstruction have softened the features of Corteforte and in the 17th century it was transformed into a noble house with a bucolic courtyard, when it was bought by a noble family of Verona. Now only one tower remains. It has been completely restored at the end of the eighties and partially transformed into an agriturismo and winery, named Corteforte.
