Begali Lorenzo is a family-owned Valpolicella wine estate at Cengia, not far from Lake Garda. It makes a range of wines under the designation, headed by its award-winning Amarone della Valpolicella Classico, Monte Ca'Bianca. Read more.
A voluptuous wine, this “Baby Amarone” uses partially dried grapes, just as an Amarone does, to achieve its intense, palate-staining full body, but unlike an Amarone, it’s approachable early and it’s sweet.
