Valpolicella, which means “valley of many cellars,” is home to a series of red grapes, most of which have unclear origins and are rarely found elsewhere in Italy. We’ll visit celebrated vineyards where Amarone is made. Its method of production dates back to Roman times. Corvina, a dark-berried, thick-skinned variety, is the principal grape in red Valpolicella wines, forming the backbone of the blend with its firm tannins and rich, smoky, red-cherry scent.
