This process makes this wine similar to the great international red wines. Once Amarone is extracted from the grapes, Valpolicella is re-strained on its virgin marcs for at least 15 days: in this period the wine completes its fermentation and reaches the level of alcohol, the structure, the ashes, all the tannic substances and the bouquet that are typical of a refined wine such as Amarone.
