Azienda Agricola Accordini

Located in the province of Verona, in the oddly named village of Pedemonte (which one would usually associate with Barolo and Barbaresco). Accordini is a master of the Ripasso style and the Corvina grape variety. Guido Accordini represents the third generation of his family to make wine. 

Guido farms 6 hectares (almost 15 acres of grapes). The style is classic and extremely well focused.

Amarone Classico 'Le Bessole'

The grapes, a blend of 70% Corvina , 20% Rondinella , 10% Corvinoni, are generally harvested in the first two weeks of October. They are laid on racks in single layers to allow a better air circulation. The grapes start to dry out on the fruit and on average, after 120 days, they loose 45% of their weight. The grapes are vinified in the end of February with a long maceration on the skins until the wine reaches an alcohol content of at least 15%. The wine is then refined in kegs before being transferred into barrels. The wine is usually bottled 3 years late

Late harvest style Corvina aged on Amarone lees, a blend of 60% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 20% Corvinoni. The must of Amarone remains in the vat and instead of being pressed, it is topped up with high quality Valpolicella before being left to referment for about 10-15 days.
