Amarone della Valpolicella Elite, DOCG
Casa Vinicola Bennati has from its outset been devoted to producing the local wine Valpolicella, specifically the ageing of Amarone. These are still the flagship wines of their portfolio.
Grapes for Amarone are harvested some three weeks later than usual to allow for a greater concentration. The bunches are put in small crates inside the “fruttaio”, a large room where ventitalion is controlled by opening windows, allowing the grapes to shrivel.
Oak ageing gives a remarkable warm bouquet reminiscent of dried fruits and spices rounded off with the classic bitter almond taste of Amarone and intense scents of stewed fruit and jam.
