Ruby red in colour, this wine shows perfumes of crushed black raspberry, black cherry, plum compote, dried herbs and mulled spice, which follow on to the palate. It is concentrated and supple with black cherry and plum flavours and a long, refined finish. Excellent with pasta, pork, red meats and game. Also serve with cheese.

The grapes for the Arele come from hillside vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico area. The vineyards are situated at 290-330m with south/south west exposure. The soils are clay and loam of volcanic origin. The vines are Guyot trained at a density of 6,500 vines per hectare.

30% of the grapes are partially dried on the wooden trays called Arele, for 60 days before fermentation. The grapes are fermented at 26-28°C in stainless steel tanks for seven days. After fermentation, the wine is matured for 10 months in 65 hectolitre Slavonian oak casks and 2 months in French oak tonneaux before bottling.
