Our wines: the result of the Valpolicella winemaking tradition

All stages of our artisanal winemaking are carried out in order to obtaining a wine that expresses our terroir at its full potential.

Our hand-wrapped packaging, cared for bottle by bottle, is the result of a centuries-old tradition.

Hand-wrapped bottles: the return of an old ritual

Our most prestigious bottles are wrapped by hand, one by one, as the result of a centuries-old family tradition that stems from Giuliano’s grandfather, Emilio.

For the bottles of Amarone Riserva, the best of our range, a wax seal is also applied manually to preserve the most historic bottles of this Valpolicella’s finest wine.
