De Stefani family is presenting two new wines: BAILO Amarone and BAILO Ripasso, coming from a cooperation with Alessandro’s old school mate. They studied together at the oenological school of Conegliano in Veneto, the oldest and most famous wine school of Italy.
The BAILO wines, Amarone and Ripasso, are produced in a marvellous hillside estate in Valpolicella, Verona. The vineyard has a perfect exposure, the soil is calcareous, the vines are old and with high density and they are farmed organically.
Why the name BAILO? Bailo is a Venetian word used to represent the ambassadors of the Republic of Venice in the world. It is then the maximum representation of the Venetian character and history.Bailo is also the surname of Marisa, Alessandro De Stefani’s mother, and this wine is made in her honor. Indeed she desired to complete the picture of the excellence of Veneto wines, together with De Stefani wines.
The Amarone and Ripasso are both produced from a blend in different percentages of four native varieties: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Croatina.
Amarone Bailo presents deep scents of ripe cherry, prunes, blackberry; important structure, thick velvety tannins and a wide bouquet.
