CA' DEL MONTE is named after the area that hooks over the village of Negrar, north of Verona, in the heart of Valpolicella. It is easy to reach the estate of Ca’ del Monte through the panoramic narrow road that climbs the hills after San Peretto. The original building of theproperty is a 17th century ancient monastery which has been added to over the years.
The winery is enthusiasticallydirected by the dynamic andentertaining brothers, Umberto and Giuseppe Zanconte andhas been cared for and owned bythe family for generations. The farm consists of approximately 50 acres of vineyards, entirely located on the sun drenched south-west hills. The perfectly positioned vineyard is planted with the typical red grapes of Valpolicella: Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara and other native varietals, from which originate great Valpolicellas and outstanding Amarone. Authentic and natural wines that are classically true to traditions and the terroir.
Bright and youthful! In the glass it is a silky crimson dress that captures hints of violet. The nose is delightful- a gardener’s paradise of gentile fruits and violets. This dry wine is crisp and fresh, untouched by oak and a pleasant bitterness at the finish. A delicate wine that is too easy to enjoy.
Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso
What a feast for the eyes- ruby red in color with a sparkle of garnet. The nose is a potpourri of flowers-iris and violets, fruit, almonds and touch of spice that wraps it warmly together. The delicious combination is elegant in the mouth- soft and silky with a balance of oak at the finish. A joy to drink on its own, albeit even better when paired with typical food of Verona.
Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico
A dark angel of sorts, the brilliant garnet red color lures you in, while the ghostly nose works it magic into your heart. Inhale, spices and warm oak will charm you. This is not for the weak- bold and elegant with great complexity and character. This full bodied wine is an adventure that your mind will long for.
