Amarone della Valpolicella is a wine with a protected denomination of origin which is produced in the neighbourhoods of the italian province of Verona. For the production of the Amarone della Valpolicella the grapes are harvested ripe in the first two weeks of October, by carefully choosing bunches having fruits not too close to each other, to let the air flow.
Grapes are allowed to dry, traditionally on straw mats. This process is called appassimento or rasinate (to dry and shrivel) in Italian.
LAmarone della Valpolicella can be combined with different meals as grilled meat, hams or cheese but it can also be consumed with Risotto all' Amarone.
