An historic vineyard whose name has such a coincidental assonance with the name "Amarone" that some scholars believe it is the original source. Located in the tiny eponymously named valley, sited in the suburb of Gargagnago, district of Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella, at an altitude of 250 m s.l., facing south-west. One of the most prestigious vineyards in the Possessioni dei Conti Serego Alighieri, descendants of the poet Dante, who have cultivated their lands here with love and dedication since 1353.
Red humus-rich soil covers Eocene era limestone and deposits of clay. Typical dry-stone walls (marogne) keep the vineyard in order. Climate and soil conditions keep the production very small but very high in quality. The traditional Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara (Serego Alighieri clone) grape varieties are used to make Vaio Armaron, a noble Amarone with extraordinary power and complexity.
