    The 2001 Amarone Classico TB (75% Corvina and Corvinone, 20% Rondinella and 5% Molinara) offers incredible freshness and vibrancy, with expressive aromatics and level of nuance that is remarkable for such a big wine. The tannins have begun to soften somewhat making this an irresistible Amarone. In 2001 the fruit saw four months of drying. Fermentation lasted 55 days and the wine was aged for 36 months in 12 and 25- hectoliter Slavonian and French oak barrels.

Located in the northeast of the country, the Veneto is Italy's third-largest wine region. It reaches from the slopes of the Dolomites in the north to the marshes in the south along the Adriatic Sea. The Veneto has three DOCG wines including Recioto di Soave, Soave Superiore, and Bardolino Superiore, as well as  22 DOs, including Valpolicella and Amarone. Valpolicella is traditionally a blend of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, and Molinara. The Amarone della Valpolicella and Recioto della Valpolicella wines are made from  grapes that have been dried to produce rich, concentrated flavors.
