The harvest of the grapes, all strictly indigenous, for the production of this wine takes place in October when the fruit is ripe and soon.
The peculiarity of the process of winemaking of Amarone are the arelle, particular mats, on which the bunches, after harvesting, are left wither naturally for three months. This process allows the almost total disappearance of the water from the bunches, while leaving the sugars intact. There first fermentation after pressing it lasts up to 50 days, at a low temperature, to allow the sugars to transform into alcohol. Subsequently then the wine is left to age for three years in Slavonian oak barrels.
