The first tasting of Amarone, an act that marked its beginning, dates back to the 1940s. A cellarman left a Recioto to ferment for longer than necessary and, when he tried it, he found himself saying aloud: "But this is not amaro (bitter) its Amarone "! A fortunate mistake for all lovers of good wine, an oversight without which today we could not sip one of the most loved wines of all time.
