Luigi Brunelli’s Amarone Classico is a perfect example of this wine as defined by Cassiodorus: "drinkable purple of incredible smoothness". This unique, prize-winning wine has no peers anywhere in the world. It is made in very limited quantities, using a handcrafted production method that has remained unaltered for decades and distinguished by particularly severe grape selection. It is during the phase of maturation and aging that Amarone acquires its celebrated bouquet and taste, as distinctive as its native soil.
