This Amarone is a wine of delightful richness and phenomenal power.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is obtained from the grapes that have been left to rest during the months of September and October, after a first careful selection in the vineyards and a second in well ventilated barns where they remain to dry on straw mats called "graticci" until January.  It is refined for about three/three half years in big casks of wood (20hl) and tonneaux and then in the bottle for about six months.

The Begali Estate is situated in the charming Valpolicella area, between Pedemonte and the hills of Castelrotto,near Verona and Garda lake. Since the beginning of the 20th century the Begali family have passed on the tradition and love of the land and its work from father to son.

The vineyards (10 hectares) are set among cherry orchards covering hills and slopes in a small hamlet called Cengia. This name comes from the name of the rocks dotted around on the facing hill. This is why the wines they produce are so rich in aromas and typical flavours of  the fertile land and reflect the harmony and the singular characteristics of this area.

A blend of the most important grapes of Valpolicella: Corvina (and Corvinone), Rondinella and other autochthonous varieties.
The first bottle of Begali in 1986. Now the tradition continues with the son and daughter of Lorenzo and Adriana, Giordano and Tiliana.
