Casa Lupo Amarone Riserva DOCG
The land is at an altitude of 450 meters above the see level and is made by the alteration of calcareous-fossilifere formations, in particular the red flake and biancone marble. Harvest takes place in several passages during the last two weeks of September to allow optimal ripening of the grapes. The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in the fruit shed for drying.
The grapes are left to dry in well-aired rooms for 4-5 months so that color, taste and sweetness concentrate at best. In winter the grapes are pressed and fermentation begins thanks to natural yeasts. Subsequently, the must is transferred in 500-1000 Lt oak barrels where fermentation will end. The wine ages in wood for 30-36 months before being bottled. Follows further refinement in bottle until optimal maturity.
