WINERY: Venturini


DESCRIPTION: Amarone Riserva expresses right from its intense, strong color, the great concentration of material that goes into its composition. It is a wine that requires a prolonged period of maturation and just for that reason reveals its true nature only after several minutes in the glass. The sweet fruit is reminiscent of ripe cherries in spirit, carob, dried prunes and faded violets, but then come the spices, nutmeg and cloves, the hints of musk and underbrush. The mouth is enveloping and thrills for its great power, elegantly restrained by the fine, almost evanescent tannins that reawaken the savory sweetness of the fruit in its long, persistent tail.

It is a wine to enjoy slowly, giving it time to reveal itself little by little. We love Amarone, and this Riserva is just the way we wanted it, capable of proving the longevity and positive evolution of this great wine over the course of the years.


BEST WITH: Amarone Riserva is produced only in certain years and in a limited number of bottles. It is a wine to keep for your special occasions.

Azienda Agricola Venturini is located in San Floriano which is a village in part of the town of San Pietro in Cariano (Verona). It was established in 1963 and continues to grow thanks to love, experience and hard work of three generations. Beginning with Grandfather Antonio who passed it onto his son Massimino, who in turn placed it in the hands of his children: Daniele carefully follows the wine making process, Mirco passionately takes care of the vineyards and Giuseppina manages the business sector.

"Dedication and passion...
...Living everyday in close contact with nature, following and respecting its rhythm. It is our family’s admiring gaze towards the rows of grapevines as it proudly admire the ripened grapes. It is the memory of our grandfather Massimino’s loving touch on our faces with his rough hands, that represented the earth’s essence".
