Casa Lupo Amarone DOCG
The land is at an altitude of 450 meters above the see level and the soil 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, collected in cases, remain in drying until December/January. The loss of water, as consequence of the drying period, improves the concentration of all substances of the grape. Fermentation and maceration occur in small steel vats; it follows final fermentation and maturation in oak barrels of 500/1000 LT, where the new wine will stay for about 18-24 months. Amarone ages further in bottle until optimal maturity.
