Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico is the best-known and most representative product of our company philosophy thanks to its balance that expresses elegance and structure.
Obtained from grapes grown in the Valpolicella Classica area and left in drying rooms, it is aged in barrels and then in bottles. It pairs perfectly with lunches or dinners with meat and aged cheeses.
Amarone is the famous wine of Valpolicella with a debated history about its true origins, full of legend and reality.
A significant testimony has come to validate the thesis that the first bottles were produced in the late thirties by the Cantina Sociale Valpolicella Negrar, of which Domìni Veneti is a “child brand” dedicated to the production of very precious Veronese wines. Here’s a brief summary.
“Sta olta te l’è proprio indovinà!” (“This time you really guessed it!”) exclaimed Gaetano Dall’Ora, one of the Cantina’s founders, to the winery’s manager Adelino Lucchese after having tasted the wine of a barrel of Recioto which had been forgotten and hadn’t been decanted.
Both expected to have to throw it away; instead they found themselves with a wine that was not sweeter, but robust and full.
By completely fermenting, the sugars of the traditional Veronese sweet wine Recioto had turned into alcohol and the Recioto itself had become another wine: a powerful “amaro”, or bitter: Amarone!
THE NAME “AMARONE”: the name seems to have been baptised by Gaetano Dall’Ora, the then-president of the cooperative founded in 1933. Gaetano brought the glass of this unknown wine to his nose and immediately tasted it. The discovery was surprising. Genially inspired and inebriated by so many aromas and flavours, the president exclaimed: “This is not an amaro, it’s an amarone!” (amaro means bitter in Italian). Ladies and gentlemen, we thus present you a king.
