Description

The history of the Fabiano Winery was founded in 1912 when the founder Francesco Fabiano, with his son Sergio, began to sell their wines in the city of Venice and from this expands its activity in the Veneto hinterland to Verona. At the end of the fifties Sergio Fabiano and his sons moved permanently to Verona, initially in the Cellar of Colà di Lazise where the trade activity took place in all of Northern Italy.

In the following decade the family began the construction of a new winery in Sona which became, starting in the early seventies, one of the largest wineries in Italy in terms of volumes of wine produced. The commercial growth of the eighties and nineties saw Fabiano wines exported to all the main countries of the world in ever increasing volumes making Fabiano one of the main wineries of the Verona and national oenology.

Alessandro Fabiano, the fourth generation, is today producer of Fabiano wines, strong of a name known all over the world thanks to its 106 years of history and its PREMIUM wines, produced in a limited quantity to less than 500.000 bottles. The logistics and bottling of some wines has remained in the Sona headquarters, while production takes place as in the past in the quality vineyards of historical growers that produce for Fabiano since the beginning of the Amarone success.

Amarone is a wine of antique lineage. It has a limited production with grapes coming from the classic zone of Valpolicella. The grapes are hand picked, pressed and vinified according to the age-old traditional method. Its flavor is dry and pleasant with a characteristic perfume and its colour is deep pomegranate which is the result of prolonged ageing.

Vinification:

From the ancient drying methode (about 4 months), in the second half of january grapes are gently pressed and destemmed and fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of about 14°C for about 50 days, after 30 days of maceration on the skins.

Ageing: 30 months in slavonia oak and 3 months in bottles.

Notes

Dark red, almost impenetrable. Intense and elegant nose with aromas of
ripe cherries and blueberries with a slight spiciness due to refinement in oak barrels. Very firm on the palate, soft tannins in good balance with nice acidity and hints of pulpy fruits.
