First generation winemakers are at the helm of La Dama, producing an amarone that is just as complex and elegant as the families who have been doing this for centuries. This wine is certified organic, and full of flavors like dark berries, dark chocolate, and a blend of spices. It takes time to make a great amarone; all Amarone wines are made using the appassimento technique. Grapes are partially dried, gently pressed and slowly fermented. They must spend at least two years maturing in wood.
