Production Notes

Made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes cultivated in selected vineyards in Valpolicella. The vines are trained on traditional trellises and planted in marl soil. Grapes are picked by hand. The grapes are destemmed and fermented in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 16 degrees with 36 hours maceration on the skins to extract light tannins and colour. The wine is matured for 6 months in large Slavonian oak casks.

Producer Information

The illustrious Montresor family moved from France to Italy at the start of the 19th Century, and settled in the Veneto region near Lake Garda. In 1892 Cantina Giacomo Montresor was established in Verona, and remains family-owned to this day.

Giorgio Montresor produces a portfolio of wines which increasingly rival the offerings of the region's more fashionable names - harnessing modern technology to craft the best wines from each site, across their 100ha of vineyard, in Valpolicella and Garda.
