About the Amarone Families:
The Amarone Families is an association of exclusively family-owned winemaking companies who make Amarone della Valpolicella Classico. The association was formed in 2009 to ensure minimum quality standards and pricing for all Amarone, in the interests of protecting the reputation of the wine and promoting its commercial success. www.amaronefamilies.it
Amarone della Valpolicella, usually known as Amarone, is a typically rich Italian dry red wine made from the partially dried grapes of the Corvina (40.0% – 70.0%), Rondinella (20.0% – 40.0%) and Molinara (5.0% – 25.0%) varieties. (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amarone)
