Roberto Corsi purchased the land located in the heart of Valgatara di Marano di Valpolicella, and planted the vineyards in the 1970s. For thirty years, the Corsi family produced classic regional varieties for sale to the renowned Valpolicella and Amarone producers. The winery was born in 2004 when son, Fabio, trained in the classical production methods by local winemakers, produced their first Valpolicella wines under their own estate label.
Today, assisted by his family, father Roberto, mother Maristella, and wife Eleonora, Fabio throws his heart and soul into producing five classic wines: Valpolicella Classico, “El Nane" Rosso Verona, Valpolicella Ripasso, Amarone, and Recioto.
“El Nane” – This wine was crafted in loving memory of Fabio’s grandfather Giovanni, El Nane, who dedicated his life to the cultivation of his vines. Produced in a lighter “appassimento” style, the corvine, corvinone, rondinella and croatina grapes are handpicked then dried for a short period before the crush. The result is a dry, intensely complex, rich wine with a long finish.
