The winery logo, the vines, the Harrods Amarone
The Ferragù estate winery is located in the heart of the area of Cellore, in Sorcè di Sopra, a rich farmland near Illasi with lush vineyards tended with loving care day after day, season after season. This is the oasis of farmland where Corvina and Rondinella , among others, are harvested to make Amarone and Valpolicella wine. Since 2002 Carlo Ferragù, with his brothers Ornello and Angelo, has been working with intensity and above all enthusiasm to produce good quality wines, where culture and vine-growing go hand in hand.
In 1997 the Ferragù brothers experimented with their first Amarone. In a few years their bottles were finding their place in wine shops and restaurants as well as in exclusive and highly prestigious places such as Harrods, the great British department store, where Amarone from the Ferragù Estate Winery is part of a unique preferential triad.
The Winery began participating in the Merano WineFestival in 2006, gaining widespread success and receiving certification as producers of Amarone Valpolicella DOC and Valpolicella Superiore DOC, those same wines that it also exports to Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden and the United States (where they are particularly appreciated in Washington, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York) as well as to Asia and the Far East: Ferragù is a brand known even in Japan.
Strong emotions come during the harvest and the winemaking in the cellars, an old barn with hayloft and portico that has been fully restored and bit by bit filled with all the tools that a winery needs, including the leading-edge equipment which, in a frontal view, over the years has become the logotype and symbol of Carlò Ferragù, the winery’s characteristic signature, a private anecdote that fills Carlò Ferragù with pride and joy and, at the same time, surprise when he hears his name used in combination with a bottle of Valpolicella. All this comes out clear and strong every time a bottle is uncorked and fulfills its glorious promises to every accustomed scent and undeceived nose.
It seems impossible that a single glass can hold so much!
