The Vecchio Marone is made of 80% Corvina and 20% Molinara, and is an exceptional value for a rich, smooth, black cherry fruit-driven Amarone. Amarone della Valpolicella is a rich Italian dry red wine made from the partially dried grapes of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, in varying percentages. Valpolicella is located in the province of Verona, within the large Veneto region near Venice. Notable wines have been produced there since ancient times.  According to the 1889 writings of the French wine historian Dr. C.B. Cerletti, one of the few Italian wine regions to emerge from the ‘phylloxera’ epidemic relatively unscathed was Valpolicella. In the 1950s, the "Amarone" style of winemaking was rediscovered. In 1968, the Valpolicella region received official recognition for quality wine production when it was granted its own DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata). In Italian, the name Amarone literally means "the Great Bitter"; originally, this was to distinguish it from the Recioto produced in the same region, which is sweeter in taste.
