The Azienda Agricola Ca’ la Bionda is situated in the commune of Marano di Valpolicella, in the heart of the historically “classic” zone of the Valpolicella. The vineyard area extends over 29 hectares of hillside land at an altitude which ranges between 150 and 300 meters above sea level and with an eastern exposure. The winery, recently renovated and restructured, was founded in 1902 by Pietro Castellani who was both a passionate and dedicated grape grower and wine-maker.
To make Amarone only the best grapes are used. The least compact grape bunches which have the best exposure to sunlight in the vineyard are selected. Immediately after vintage the grape bunches are placed on cane drying racks which facilitate the drying or “raisining” of the grapes. This drying period lasts from vintage to the end of January or early February. During this “drying” period the grapes loose approximately 40% of their weight in water and undergo certain physio-chemical transformations that give to the finished wine both a unique bouquet and flavor as well as a remarkable concentration.
A great concentration of aromas assails the nose with strong notes of liquor cherries and candied fruits, the palate is long and rich with the same ripe fruits and a hint of almonds prevailing. Grilled steak, rich stews and game are ideal accompaniments to this wine although it is equally good when sipped and savored without food.
