Introducing the Gamba Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG CAMPEDEL 2016
Amarone is a full-bodied ruby red with garnet highlights. Best quality hand harvested from Valpolicella classico are used to make this great wines.
Drying of selected harvests on trellises and ageing in French oak casks for 30 months make it “il Vino degli Del”(wine for the gods). It’s bouquet is intense and persistent. Scents of flowers, cherry, almond and hazel-nut. Paired with meat, sweet sour dishes and aged cheese.
“Campedel” Amarone is the pearl of the GAMBA winery. Tradition and passion are the key to success of this intense and full-bodied wine, which comes from the soft pressing of carefully selected grapes and left to dry in wooden trays for four months.
The grapes pressing takes place in February and lasts for about 30 days.
The fermentation temperature ranges from 20 to 25 degrees C. Aging of Amarone Campedel takes place first for about six months in steel barrels and then for 30 months in French oak barrels with a capacity of 225L.
A fine family vineyard, Gamba was started by the Senior Aldrighetti now handed down to his three sons, Giovanni, Giuseppe and Martino.

Hand-picked grapes from the six hectares of vineyards set out on terraces backing onto the rolling hills in the heart of Valpolicella classical wine growing area at about 300 metres above sea level. The practical soils coupled with fine terrains, sunshine and rainfall produce excellent Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Croatina grapes.
With great care and passion, the three brothers personally look after the planting of the vines, cultivating, harvesting, fermenting and bottling process to ensure best quality.
