Corte Figaretto Valpolicella Ripasso Valpantena Superiore 'Acini Ameni' 2019
- Corvina, Corvinone & Rondinella
- Red Wine
Corte Figaretto is a small family-run winery in the heart of the famous Valpolicella region, the Valpantena Valley, to the north of Verona. The precious vineyards have southern exposure and perfect for making red wines. The family is now managing 10 hectares in Valpolicella Valpantena.
The winery is the only one in the Valpolicella wine region, which works with the system of vinification per gravity. This means they don’t use pumps in the time between grape and most. Here berries break alone with the natural movements of fermentation, which is always made by spontaneous yeasts.
The vineyards are exposed to a Mediterranean climate with contained rainfall. The evening breeze from the Lessinia mountains cools the day and guarantees wide temperature differences that help the grapes to be ripe and get optimum anthocyanin and polyphenolic substances. These qualities give unmatched qualities to their wines. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara, Oseleta, and Croatina grapes are used to make natural Valpolicella red wines.
