- Perennial Tre Bicchieri recipients, Viviani's methods are prototypically old-school. Eschewing vineyard intervention, the hand-harvested grapes for their Amarone are stored to dry in fruttai for 4-6 months. After spontaneous fermentation, the grapes macerate for 40 days before transferring to barrel for a 30-40 month maturation. The bottled wine is released nearly 5 years after harvesting. Lavora intenso, no?
