The Photo of the Week: Amarone in the Making

I have worked in the past as a photographer, and whenever I visit a winery have a camera if not in my hand, strapped over a shoulder. I have therefore decided it's time to post a weekly photo -- sometimes it will match the weekly photo I post on Italian food at About.Com, and others not.

This past week I was in Valpolicella for the Anteprima of the 2007 vintage, which will be coming shortly. On Sunday the Consorzio had organized several tours, and I the opportunity. Here we have Amarone in the making (pumping over, actually), at the Azienda Agricola Aldrighetti - Le Bignele in Marano di Valpolicella. The aroma was heavenly.
