"Albasini" Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

It is our flag, the most important wine of the family: magic in the bottle, harmony for the heart and mind.

Vintage: 2011

Ask winemaker

The Amarone “Albasini” is the most representative wine of our winery.

It is our idea of Amarone: a wine that stands out for its traditional and austere style. Fineness and elegance are its strength and its identity.

Since the vintage 2010, we have dedicated it to our ancestors, the Albasini, who built the cottage of Figari and began to cultivate the surrounding fi elds, now planted with vines.

Figari is today one of the three cru vineyards of our winery and a natural terrace on the Valpolicella Classica, overlooking the valley of Marano di Valpolicella.
