Amarone Accordini: how was Amarone della Valpolicella born? why is he so prized and famous all over the world?
Like all precious things, Amarone della Valpolicella carries with it a fascinating story that has to do with the birth of him.
The story of the birth of Amarone DOCG is as curious as many other stories of creations that have changed the world.
In fact, Amarone was born in 900 due to a simple mistake. As it happens, the saying goes, “not all evils come to harm”.
The cellarman Bertani from Valpolicella forgets to ferment a Veronese Recioto for too long and when he returned he tasted the red wine exclaiming “but this is an Amarone!” and from that day the version of Recioto amara was born, later definitively called “Amarone”.
Recently, the Amarone scandal was discounted at prices never seen before, 7 euros on the shelf of a German supermarket.
The producers of Valpolicella and the world of wine, have declared their dissent and concern, at the initiative to place on the market a prestigious product at almost “ridiculous” prices compared to the content that the amarone has maintained over time.

The president of the Consortium for the protection of Valpolicella wines, in defense of Amarone della Valpolicella, declared that a bottle cannot cost 7 euros or even have a price below 25 euros (at the supermarket) and 40 euros (at the restaurant).
It is about selling out and humiliating an entire industry that has built an inimitable reputation around the world for many years.
In fact, a bottle of Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG usually costs between 25 and 40 euros on average.
Accordini Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG is a product of the highest quality, difficult to obtain.
There is a lot of work, sacrifices and passion, so this Veronese wine should not be debased in this way.
Then there are the collectible labels that have a price that can reach 500 euros per bottle of Amarone, like that of the Bertani winery.
