Our 2000 Riserva Amarone ‘Le Bessole’ from the Accordini stable is one for those special occasions…
This wine has just been released onto the market and is now ready to drink. Having seen 18 months in new oak, with the grapes firstly dried on racks for 120 days, this deep and super-concentrated wine has emerged and is an experience to taste.

This small estate winery has deep country roots: their founders have been share-croppers, then landowners and finally wine-makers. Today, the company is led by Stefano Accordini himself, helped by his wife Giuseppina and his two sons, Tiziano and Daniele. The family estate extends over 6 hectares situated in Negrar, the heart of Valpolicella, in a town called Bessole.
These vineyards are a precious source of great satisfaction thanks to their southern-east exposure and their soil, which is well balanced in its components. A good choice of three different varieties of grapes, Corvine, Rondinelle and Corvinone, grafted by Stefano and taken from vines of high quality, guarantees the production of ripe grapes well suited to be withered. A great focus is given to the grape withering, a technique which enables the production of the most important wines of the Accordini family such as Amarone, Fornetto, Fornetto Acinato, Recioto Acinato, the white “Bricco delle Bessole” and the innovative IGT Passo. The traditional techniques, such as Ripasso, are employed to produce fine wines of a very high level, such as the Valpolicella Classico Superiore
