Wine of Amarone della Valpolicella appellation
Amarone della Valpolicella is one of the Valpollicella wine designations in the Veneto region. This designation’s production zone is located north of Verona, between the villages of Sant Ambrogio and Montecchia di Corsara. Amarone Della Valpolicella was classified as a DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) in 2009. Like certain famous recipes or famous wines, Amarone della Valpolicella was the result of an accident, yet it is nonetheless one of the most prized wines in Italy. 

According to the traditional story, Amarone was the result of a Recioto which had been "forgotten" by a producer. The production of Amarone della Valpolicella starts with a late harvest, the grapes are then dried in the open air for about three months before being pressed. For the Recioto, the fermentation is stopped in order to produce a sweet wine. It would seem that, 70 years ago, a wine producer forgot to stop the fermentation. All the sugar was therefore transformed into alcohol, turning Recioto into Amarone, a dry red wine, which is more bitter and has fairly high alcohol content (14-16 °). 

Produced from the Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grape varieties, Amarone della Valpolicella is a wine with excellent ageing potential. Fruity when young, the powerful flavours develop after 5-8 years of ageing. This vinification "mistake" has resulted in a red wine of great complexity, which is one of the most respected wines in Italy.
