Cantina di Negrar Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG

The Cantina di Negrar brand is the soul of Cantina Valpolicella Negrar and pays homage to the philosophy of cooperative production while also recalling the territory’s historical vestiges: the effigy of St. Mark’s Lion standing tall on a column in the centre of Negrar is testimony of the Venetian Republic’s domination in the sixteenth century. The Cantina di Negrar wines are rooted in the wine-making tradition of Valpolicella and the Veronese wine-growing areas, with a modern reinterpretation to guarantee the best price/quality ratio.
Made from grapes grown in the Valpolicella Classico zone (Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella), which undergo the long drying process called appassimento, Amarone is the maximum expression of the union between men and this land. A wine of refined softness, intense, enveloping, a meditation wine of great longevity.
