Amarone della Valpolicella is today unanimously recognized as the finest among the Veronese wines and one of the most important of the Italian red wines. It is very appreciated by demanding consumers all over the world. It originated as an evolution of Recioto, one of the most ancient wines of our vine-growing and wine-producing history. In the 4th century after Christ, Cassiodorus, a minister of Theodoric king of the Visigoths, described in a letter a wine obtained with a special grape-drying technique. It was then called "Acinatico" and produced in a territory known under the name of Valpolicella (according to some people this name would came from Latin "Vallis-polis-cellae" and might mean "valleys with many cellars").

The Valpolicella is located north of Verona. It borders the Lake Garda to the west and is protected by the Lessini Mountains to the east and to the north. It covers Verona foothills area, which is part of the Eastern Alps.

Vines are traditionally pergola-trained, according to the typical “pergola Veronese” system. Valpolicella winemakers’ experience draws both on traditional and innovative techniques. To help the spread of innovation, over the last few years the Consortium for the Tutelage of Valpolicella Wines has been contributing to the promotion of sustainable and environment-friendly grapevine growing techniques.
