  • The Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella grapes are the base for the production of the great Verona wines, such as Valpolicella, Ripasso and Amarone, which have a great international success.

    The vineyards cultivation is on the hill of the little towns around Verona at around 150 to 250 metres above sea level.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The grapes are still hand-picked and placed in wooden cases, and this is usually made at dawn or at late in the evening, just to avoid the intense heat that the grapes may suffer during the day. The grape picked up during fresh hours, is intact and therefore it doesn’t suffer the skin fermentation during the transport.

    In January and February the wine is passed again on the noble skins of Amarone. In this way the wine structure becomes stronger, rich of complex fragrances and tannins. After that, it ripens in oak barrels for 12 months, with a light refine in barriques.
