1990 Sergio AlighieriVaio

Serego Alighieri is an Italian wine producer located in the Valpolicella Classico zone of Veneto. It has been in collaboration with well-known Veneto wine producer Masi Agricola since 1973, and is perhaps best known for its classic examples of regional wines including Amarone della Valpolicella, Recioto della Valpolicella, and Valpolicella Classico Superiore.

The flagship wine, Vaio Amaron, is produced from the varieties Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grown on the terraced Vaio Amaron vineyard. The Amarone is made by the traditional appassimento process whereby grapes are dried for three months before being pressed, vinified, and aged in Slavonian and cherry-wood casks for almost five years.
