Drink it now or cellar for up to 15 years. It is recommended to decant it for an hour.

Founded by six Valpolicella growers in 1933, the Cantina di Negrar is a very important cooperative winery with a fundamental role in the production of Amarone. In the 90 years following its foundation, the cooperative has undergone many changes: in 1948, the headquarters moved to San Vito di Negrar, merging with the Cantina Produttori della Valpolicella, while in 1957 the Cantina was refounded with 80 members in Negrar.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is the most representative wine of the Cantina di Negrar. The wine is produced from a blend of Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella, coming from vineyards with an average age of over 20 years located in the historic area of Valpolicella. After the manual harvest, the grapes are traditionally left to dry on racks so that they reach the right sugar concentration, before the vinification process, which generally begins in January. The finished wine ages for 18 months in large oak barrels and another 6 months in the bottle.

This splendid Amarone reveals an intense and complex aromatic profile with notes of cherries in alcohol, typical of this wine, followed by aromas of plum, floral and sweet spices hints. On the palate, it is powerful and well-balanced with full structure and velvety tannins. It is the ideal wine with braised beef, aged cheeses, and dark chocolate.
