Tasting Notes

North of Verona, in the town of Negrar, at the Valpolicella zone’s highest point (350 m), the Le Ragose estate overlooks gentle, lush green hills.
In 1969, enologists Arnaldo Galli and his wife Marta bought the 70-acre Le Ragose estate, which had been abandoned. Recognizing that many excellent vineyard sites had been abandoned in favour of more easily-farmed sites on the plains, they replanted the Le Ragose vineyards and began making Amarone and Valpolicella in as natural a way as possible.


Critical Praise

"Seeing 90 days of appassimento, this blend of 50% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella and 10% other mixed grapes was first made in 1969, and this Amarone has followed a very traditional approach ever since. The 2008 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a bit drier than its peers (with just 1.56 grams per liter of residual sugar) and carries savory tones of dark fruit, leather, spice and tobacco. The wine ages in stainless steel for the first 12 months and then goes into 50-hectoliter barrels for an additional 72 months. This vintage shows just enough freshness to assure you that this 11-year-old Amarone will hold for another decade. Some 45,000 bottles were made." - Monica Larner, Issue 244 August 30th 2019, The Wine Advocate
