My eyes have contemplated the spectacle of the grape harvest one hundred and twenty-nine times. I have talked enough about the moonlight. Don’t ask me about anything else. just listen to the voice of the vines when there is no longer a breath of wind. I am Massimago.
AMARONE 2012
della Valpolicella DOCG
“The selection of the grapes, from a single vineyard at 350 mt over the sea level on the top of the hill , traces an unbreakable bound between the soul of this mineral soil and the long evolution of its wine. After a long and constant comparison between man and nature we proudly achieve the best expression of Massiamgo. Verticality and fullbodyness and complexity of its line reminds the purity of the traditional Amarone.
The best way to enjoy it: share it with the deariest friends”.
