During the tour you will completely surrounded by Amazon wine in all its declination, starting from plantation area, called valpolicella, to the best secrets of wine making process, passing through an amazing vertical tasting of 5, as many of 5, aged since 2001.

This education about Amarone will have a step forward speaking about the pairing of this unique wine with a special selection of the finest quality of chocolate and cheeses, and the latter are coming directly from local production too. 

But the education  is not complete if we won't speak also about the most fascinating process in Amazon making, that is appassimento, when the grapes (after being dried) are ready to be pressed and  fermented for a long time, before the aging in barrel starts. 

And after all this studying and tasting and pairing, it will be the time for a typical Italian lunch inside a wine cellar and once again the Amazon will be the main character, this time with Corvina grape, one of the three exclusive varieties used in Amarone production.

Last but not least, your exclusive experience with Amarone in Valpolicella will end with another side of Amarone wine, that is Amarone Grappa (Amarone schnapps) for the best of the final rush, before starting to back to Verona.
