Product description

Luca Fedrigo’s winery, Arco, whose name is inspired by the 16th century stone “Arch of Jupiter”, has its roots in the municipality of Negrar in the heart of Valpolicella, an area dedicated to the cultivation of grapevine since Roman times. In fact, the origin of the toponym indicates a “valley of many wine cellars”. The Amarone D.O.C.G., which Luca produces, connects past and present times, the result of skills acquired thanks to his experience.

Considerable experience is required to carry out the drying process of the grapes, and it takes a careful and patient manual selection of the best bunches (corvina, rondinella and molinara grapes) which are left to dry in well-ventilated rooms – the so-called lofts – constantly monitoring their quality on the trellis – arele in dialect – for about 100 days. Subsequently, the crushed grapes are transformed into must and begin to ferment during the cold winter months, leading to a slow maceration followed by a long period of refinement in casks, which the regulations require to be lasting at least 2 years.

The result is a red raisin wine, which is also completely dry, that owes its name to distinguish it from the other famous wine produced in Valpolicella, Recioto, a sweet raisin wine.
