An outstanding, great, Amarone della Valpolicella, rich, big, bold, like a proper Amarone should be made a small, independent wine grower with vineyards right in the centre of the “Classico” area. Made from grapes grown in the heart of the Valpolicella area, from a single vineyard, “le Quare”, at about 400m above sea level, this red wine does not have the same elegance than its brother, the Campedel, however, is bigger, fruiter, very smooth and ready to drink now or be kept in the cellar for a few more years.
The Amarone is a great wine with depth and structure, a wine that pairs beautifully game, braised meat, and aged cheeses, as well as being a meditation wine, a wine to be enjoyed on its own. For more information on how the wine is made click here
Over the generations, the Gamba winery has been passed down from father to son and it is now run by the three brothers Giovanni, Giuseppe and Martino helped by their own sons and daughters. Located right in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area and spanning six acres, they grow the classic Valpolicella grapes, from Corvina to Rondinella with which then they make the classic Valpolicella wines, from valpolicella to amarone, from valpolicella ripasso to a recioto della valpolicella.
