Amarone Classico DOCG 2010, Venturini

AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA DOCG CLASSICO, VENTURINI- VINTAGE 2010

With its intense, luminous garnet red color, Amarone is concentrated and dense. Amid the sweet sensations of violet and steeped cherries, spicy notes of pepper and cloves are temptingly perceptible. The mouth is explosive and warm, well balanced by the pleasantly savory dryness of the strong tannins that add elegance and enhance its enjoyment, with an aftertaste of small, sweet fruits preserved in spirits.
The label of this wine shows the fragment of an effigy that decorates an ancient Romanesque church located near our cellar. It depicts two winged lions guarding a vase of wine. Displaying it on our labels is our way of conveying the culture of our land to the rest of the world.

ABOUT VENTURINI FAMILY:

It was in 1963 that, in San Floriano, in the heart of the Valpolicella district, the winery Azienda Agricola Venturini Massimino first made its appearance on the scene. The indissoluble bond between love for the land and experience acquired in years of hard work and devotion became a business that has passed through the generations to the present time: grandfather Antonio and dad Massimino passed the baton ideally to Daniele, Mirco and Giuseppina, each with his or her own skills and interests, one for growing, one for wine- making, one for management. The timeline has lengthened but the history of the Venturini family has continued on its path of passion for the culture of the area and respect for the knowledge inherited from those who lived its history.

“Devotion and passion are an everyday experience, living as we do, in contact with nature, following and respecting its rhythms. It is with steadfast love and admiration that the family gaze proudly at the ripe fruit, remembering the gentle way grandpa Massimino would caress our faces with the rough, toil-worn hands of a man of the soil”.

The family look to the future, without forgetting their roots. The strength of the vocation keeps the Venturini family constantly in activity. Day after day, it is fed by the desire to give life to a product capable of reflecting what is truest and deepest in the soul of a company that has never forgotten its origins, receiving from them the stimulus to renew itself and respect the old teachings, to grow stronger and better.
