The Amarone Art Families meet The Academy of Barolo
On Tuesday, February 7th, at the Antica Bottega del Vino in Verona, the 13 Amarone Families will meet up with 10 wine producers from the Academy of Barolo. Two great terroirs will be brought face to face in an exclusive tasting (presented by Gianni Fabrizio and Nicola Frasson, curators of the Gambero Rosso’s guide of Italian wines) of two majestic red wines, Amarone and Barolo, considered emblematic symbols of Made in Italy the world over.
In total 23 labels all produced in 2011 will be tasted. “I am very pleased with this meeting with the Academy of Barolo,” said Sabrina Tedeschi, President of the Amarone Families. “Since the beginning of my presidency, I have aimed to consolidate the strategic synergies between producers inside and outside of their respective wine regions with the aim of communicating the positive work we have done together for the benefit of the Italian wine system.” Both associations are united in their commitment to showcase their respective territories, while promoting continued research regarding the ancient traditions of their origins.
This event is not to be missed as it will be a unique opportunity not only to appreciate the grandness of these wines, but also to glean the differences and similarities between the wine regions of Valpolicella and Barolo, both of which are unique in terms of quality of the soil, climate, indigenous varieties and production technologies.
