Le Ragose Amarone Classico

Amarone means a lot in the Italian wine landscape and it is one of the most powerful examples of what a complex red wine should be. Thanks to the drying of 3 different Italian grapes – Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara – this Amarone becomes a rich, warm, intense and elegantly sweet red wine to be matched with the best red meat or with a great cigar, gently evolving in your glass aroma after aroma. Indian food tonight? This red will make it taste even better.

Le Ragose Amarone Classico Tech Spec 2

Le Ragose

In 1969 Arnaldo Galli, winemaker, and his wife Marta began to research and experiment new techniques in vine-growing and wine-making. Nowadays, their sons Paolo, graduated in Business Management, and Marco, graduated in Agriculture with a thesis on “Microvinification of local varieties”, are still researching and experimenting to have consistently top quality wines.

The family commitment is to focus on quality and not on quantity, with the outmost respect for traditions, but always keeping an eye on modern technologies, both in vine-growing and in cellar. Paolo and Marco Galli are now leading this all-family company, keeping on the philosophy and completing parent’s Marta and Arnaldo projects.

The estate’s forty acres are dry farmed (no irrigation) and the steep vineyard slopes require all vineyard work to be done by hand. For ageing, large Slovenian botti (oak casks) are used, with experimental use of new and used French Allier and Tronçais barriques, allow truer expression of subtle terroir characters that make a wine from “Le Ragose” unmistakably of its place and uniquely itself.

Marta Galli, often referred to as “La Signora del Vino,” was voted “Wine Maker of the World” in 1990 by her peers, in part because of her influence in re- establishing Valpolicella as a classic in Italian wine and helping it achieve a DOC designation. She was also a founding member of the prestigious VIDE organisation of small family-owned estates that promote excellence and typicality, as well as Le Donne del Vino, an international group for women in wine.
