AMARONE CLASSICO 'VIGNETO MONTE SANT'URBANO' SPERI 2019 DESCRIPTION

Amarone Vigneto Monte Sant'Urbano by Speri tells the story of a family that has turned qualitative continuity and local roots into a central objective of her production process, becoming a landmark not only for the agricultural history of Valpolicella, but for the whole wine scene in Italy. Part of this vision is the choice, adopted by the Speri winemakers, to deal just with their own grapes, to adopt only traditional plant systems, more congenial to traditional local varieties (the bower tilted open), to opt for cultivation systems with low environmental impact. The Speri family estate vineyards are located entirely within the area of Valpolicella, at an altitude varying between 150 and 350 meters above sea level, divided into prestigious crus (whose grapes are always vinified separately) and bordered by "marogne", traditional dry stone walls featured by an important historical value.

Right in the center of this area lies the vineyard Sant'Urbano, a place of rare beauty where the vine, olive and cherry seem to find an ideal habitat, between the sinuous curves of the hills in the municipality of Fumane. From these 19 hectares limestone and volcanic soil takes origin Amarone Vigneto Monte Sant'Urbano, an undisputed symbol of the Speri family, as an excellent example of finesse and classicism. After a careful selection of the best grapes in the prestigious vineyards, the grapes are dried for a long period (3-4 months depending on the year): the best grapes are carefully hand-selected and arranged on the traditional "arele" (screens); then are left to rest under controlled humidity. They loose about 40% humidity, with a consequent concentration of sugars, aromatic substances and tannins. This is the fundamental basis for the construction of a wine of great structure, with a great complexity of expression and an indisputable longevity.
