Valpolicella DOC

Valpolicella is a fine youthful ruby-red wine with a winy, light perfume with hints of cherry and rose. The palate is fresh, dry and rather soft, pleasantly lively. Valpolicella “Superiore” is made from selected grapes grown in the best locations and it ages for a year minimum thus obtaining its characteristic ruby-red colour with garnet shades; the nose is slightly ethereal with hints of ripe cherry and oak. Its flavour is fine, harmonious, dry and velvety.

Vapolicella Ripasso DOC

Valpolicella Ripasso is obtained bt the refermentation of basic Valpolicella and residual Amarone marc for about 15/20 days. It is characterized by a heavier structure and longevity. If compared to basic Valpolicella the alcohol content is higher, the roundness more marked and the values of the phenolic substances and extracts are higher. Ruby-red in colour with garnet shades, it offers a slightly ethereal aroma of red fruits with notes of ripe cherry and oak. The palate is fine, harmonious, dry and velvety.

Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG

Amarone is made out of dry grapes, left in fruit drying lofts for 100/120 days. During this drying process the grapes sugar content increases. Amarone has one of the highest ageing potential among Italian wines. This wine’s colour is an intense garnet-red and its bouquet has dry fruit, tobacco and spices notes. A high alcohol content and softness result also from the noble moulds that develop during the drying process. Its flavour is markedly fruity and dry, full-bodied, warm and strong. It has a strong personality and can age even more than 20 years.

Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG

Recioto is made out of dry grapes, left in fruit drying lofts for 100/120 days. Fermentation is stopped to preserve this wine’s typical structure and sweetness. Recioto has an intense ruby-red colour. It is dark and sometimes impenetrable, with a strong dry fruit and jammy black cherries scent, which harmoniously develops in a velvety flavour, with a strong structure and a good total acidity.

About us

Company details

Founded in 1924, the Consorzio per la Tutela dei Vini Valpolicella is an association of grapevine growers, winemakers, and bottlers of Valpolicella wine production area, that includes 19 municipalities of Verona province. As the Consorzio represents more than the 80% of the producers using “Valpolicella” appellation, it promotes activities to enhance the value of the whole territory: the wine and its area of origin, Valpolicella history, traditions and the typical features that make its landscape unique in the world.
The Consorzio has very important institutional tasks: it takes care of promotion, value enhancement, and information spread for Valpolicella wines and territory and it is responsible for the tutelage of Valpolicella brand and viticulture in Valpolicella wine production area. It is in charge of the surveillance, safeguard, and protection of the appellation.

 The wide production area of Valpolicella DOC and DOCG wines includes the hilly area of Verona province and is divided into three different zones, according to the production regulations:
  • The Classica, formed by five geographic areas, including the valleys of Fumane, Marano and Negrar and the areas around Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella and San Pietro in Cariano.
  • The Valpantena valley.
  • The DOC area includes the Avesa and Quinzano valleys, two small areas located between Classica and Valpantena and other five valleys of the Eastern Valpolicella.
The Valpolicella is located north of Verona. It is just east of the Lake Garda and is protected by the Lessini Mountains to the east and to the north. It covers Verona foothills area, which is part of the Eastern Alps. From a morphological point of view, the Valpolicella landscape has a very heterogeneous structure. We can ideally think of Valpolicella as a fan-shaped territory, formed by a series of valleys originating win Verona area and developing towards the north. Valpolicella landscape is characterized by hills, soft slopes, and hill-high watersheds, mostly covered with vineyards, olive and cherry trees. These territory’s geological and climatic features are the basis for the production of original and typical wines.

 Vines are traditionally pergola-trained, according to the typical “pergola Veronese” system. Valpolicella winemakers’ experience draws both on traditional and innovative techniques. To help the spread of innovation, over the last few years the Consorzio has been contributing to the promotion of sustainable and environment-friendly grapevine growing techniques.
The main grape varieties of the area are Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella. Other lesser-used varieties are Molinara, Dindarella, and Oseleta. All of them are strictly indigenous and thus can be found within the Verona province only. The wines of the appellation are Valpolicella DOC, Valpolicella Ripasso DOC, Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG, and Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG.
