Anteprima Amarone – The 2013 Vintage

 The Consorzio per la Tutela dei Vini Valpolicella is happy to announce the countdown for Anteprima Amarone – the 2013 Vintage. The event will take place at the beautiful and historical Palazzo della Gran Guardia, Verona, from January 28th to the 30th.

The three days include: January 28 is press day, January 29 is reserved for enthusiasts and general public, with the last day, January 30th  being reserved for industry.  This year there will be 78 participating wineries with over 150 labels, with some older vintages.

The VDglass Company will also be launching a new stemware specifically designed for Amarone wines that is said to “enhance its expression”.

On Saturday, January 28th there will be a presentation with art critic Philippe Daverio and journalist Andrea Scanzi. The latter will discuss the parallelism—perhaps a bit of a stretch and probably quite entertaining—between works of art and Amarone.

Sponsors include: AGSM, ATV, Banco Popolare, Faberest, Grafiche Valpolicella, Idea Grandimpianti, Stipa Spa, VDglass, Volkswagen Group Italia Spa.

Founded in 1924, the Consorzio per la Tutela dei Vini Valpolicella is an association that includes viticulturists, winemakers, and bottlers from the Valpolicella wine production area, a territory that embraces 19 municipalities in the Verona area.

There are over 80% of the producers that use the “Valpolicella” designation, the consortium creates initiatives that enhance the entire territory: the wine and its land of origin.

The consortium handles the promotion, enhancement, and awareness of the wines and of the Valpolicella territory, protection of the trademark and the viticulture in the Valpolicella wine production area, supervision, safeguarding, and defense of the designation.
