Old and new technologies collide to unlock the secrets of Amarone

If you were asked to name three or four Italian wines that are the most highly respected all over the world, I bet most of you would include Amarone della Valpolicella. This red wine made with dried grapes has been appreciated by wine lovers forever, but its popularity has shot up recently. So much so that wine producers in various other countries are trying to imitate Amarone by drying their grapes before pressing; today you can find “Amarone-style” wines even in Australia.
