Our idea about wine

We tell our wines through the eyes and heart of those who produce them

Looking at the valley of Negrar, in the heart Valpolicella Classica, people are charmed by the landscape reaveling the connection
between man and nature with rows of vines, old olive trees and blooming cherry trees.  

Our story is bond to this land: a unique hillside region with an heritage Villa Spinosa wants to defend
and preserve by respecting nature, traditions and patient work in the vineyard.

Our love for this land and our passion by making our cru vineyards Jago, Figari and Costa del Buso express their best while turning in the cellar, all give our wines character and personality, a sign of tipicity and quality for each wine from Valpolicella to Superiore, to Ripasso, from Amarone to Recioto.

Life in the vineyard

The vineyard is a demanding boss paying us back generously with harvest

Viticulture in this region is dated back to old times and every winmaker is the custodian of a cultural and historical heritage making most of the Valpolicella's identity. 
Every area, every cru vineyard is a microcosm bond to the changes in the soil composition, winds, sun exposure, wine making desicions from the clone to the pruning: a sacred alliance called TERROIR!

We have been so lucky to grow grapes over hundred years in 20 hectars of vineyards spreading over three microzones, rated among the top areas giving wines, able to express the features and shades of this territory:  JAGO, FIGARI, COSTA DEL BUSO.
For every vineyard a wine, to discover what characterizes or differs each cru, the varieties and the effort required to get wines carrying that name and have the grapes for Amarone.

Work in the vineyard

The life cycle of vines and grapes needs a lot of care and handy work, know how and  a deep knowledge of the territory.

Life in the cellar

wine doesn't get old, but matures over time

Some wines need time, they open up slowly and they develop later on in the glass. They are not hurried guys! That's Amarone Guglielmi di Jago after 10, 15, 20 years of aging. There are also wines telling about sour cherries and spices, about freshness and identity such as Figari Valpolicella Classico Superiore.

We take great care of every aspect of wine life, from the harvest to the wine making. 

The grapes of every vineyard, with a different sun exposure and soil composition, are harvested, fermented and aged separately to get the best of their own features. That is why our wines are so rich in expression, trying to make their own way. Sometimes they need to be followed, sometimes they just need to rest alone and meditate. 

That is the great job of wine makers, who have to understand the right timing for every single wine, rakings, aging in barriques or large casks and finally the botlling.
