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.

Located in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica area, in the hamlet of Jago on dry terraces. Altitude from 200 to 250 metres above sea level. Southeast exposure. Soil type: loamy-clayey, sometimes limestone. Vineyard grassing. Training system: Veronese pergoletta. Age of producing vines: 15 years. Load of buds per vinestock: 18. Planting density: 3,300/3,500 vines per hectare. Average yield per hectare: 20 hl.
