Epochs and lands connected by a family destiny, four generations that have been handing down traditions, knowledge and passion for centuries. After his grandgrandfather, his grandfather and his father, nowadays it’s Antonio Rambelli who manages the family winery and cultivates his 19-hectare garden overlooking Verona: a little corner of heaven on the sunny hills of Valpolicella.
This land has always enchanted Antonio. The Vineyard of Tenuta Il Canovino faces south and grow about 170-230 meters above the sea level. The peculiar composition of the soil – made of calcareous-dolomitic stones, basalt and drumlin, and fluvial and volcanic sediments – guarantees to every grape unique characteristics that are exalted by the wise work in the cellar. Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva is the buttonhole of Tenuta Il Canovino: grapes are let drying for 100 days in wood boxes and loose about 60% of their weight; after pressing, wine ages in Slavonia oak barrels for 4 years and then refines one year in bottle. The result is a precious nectar with a warm and velvety taste, spicy and ethereal perfumes, cherry, almond and vanilla inklings.
