Amarone lovers are squirming in their seats at the prospect of loading up on Buglioni –a real-deal, molten chocolate-style Amarone that can ruin you for every other wine. Their unique vineyard provides superb, savory fruit and a complex, velvety mouthfeel. Buglioni’s secret is using Amarone’s forgotten original recipe – and aging it extra-long until the texture is pure perfection. A wine of such expressive decadence that everyone deserves this experience!

In June 1993, Alfredo Buglioni purchased an old farmhouse surrounded by vineyards and olive groves in Valpolicella Classico, northwest of Verona, Italy. After only two months in the Buglionis’ new home, and without any knowledge of
how to prune, harvest or store the precious wine grapes surrounding their farmhouse, the vineyards were ready to be harvested. Initially, each vintage was a joyous event shared with friends and collaborators, but soon the Buglionis’ vision and passion allowed them to dream that they could become “real” winemakers. In 2000 — after renovating the farmhouse and its underground cellars — the Buglionis turned to the prestigious Oenology Institute of San Michele all’Adige in Trento, Italy, to find a young enologist to join them in their new adventure as wine producers. Diego Bertoni took up the challenge and is still their enologist today.
