Production Notes

Valpolicella Classico Superiore vinified using the traditional Ripasso technique. The harvest is followed by fermentation and maceration of the fresh grapes for around 15 days. After drawing off, the wine remains in steel tanks until January/February, when it undergoes a second fermentation on the Amarone marc. Ageing in 50 hl oak barrels for 12 months. Further development in the bottle for 4 months.

Producer Information

Gorgo Winery is a family owned company located in Custoza that was founded by Roberta's grandfather in 1970 as an investment and has been taken on by Roberta Bricolo. They are supported by a skilled viticultural team who have been with them since the beginning. The soils in the region are made up of pebbles and silt rich in calcium, which give the wines a distinctive mineral character.

She now owns around 50 hectares of vineyards, with full organic certification granted in 2018 for the wines made in their Custoza winery. The land is cultivated by hand and the wines are made in their own winery with the exclusion of the Valpolicella Ripasso. With a philosophy of cultivating typical and indigenous grape varieties but with careful protection of the environment, this innovative winery has earned a two Biccheri rating in Italy’s prestigious Gambero Rosso.

Their wines are firmly rooted in tradition with a modern and eclectic approach to production and their focus is to offer high value wines for everyday drinking.
