Why we love it
An outstanding, great, everyday, Amarone della Valpolicella, rich, big, bold, like a proper Amarone should be. 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 in a few years.
The artisan who made it
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.
