The Speri family is one of the oldest wineries to produce Amarone wine: the first bottles that were marketed date back to the second half of the nineteen fifties.
How the Speri Amarone (Monte Sant’Urbano property) is made.
Manual selection of the finest bunches followed by drying for around 100 days. Then the grapes are destemmed and pressed; fermentation with maceration in stainless steel tanks. 24 months in 500 l. French oak tonneaux and 18 months in medium-to-large Slavonian oak casks. Maturation in bottle for 12 months.
