THE TERRITORIES

Valpolicella

On the highest hills of Valpolicella Classica, in Marano, the vineyards occupy the highest belt of arable land before the extreme limit of the mountain. An environmental context that is the premise for growing several autochthonous and distinct grape varieties, in perfect exposure to the sun. For human beings the only thing left to do is to respect the slow and demanding rites of growing grapes and making wine, following the teachings of tradition. The drying of the grapes takes place naturally in the fruit drying area adjacent to the wine cellar.

Characteristics of the territory

Geography

The Township of Marano, Alta Valpolicella Classica boasting grapevines in a natural amphitheater with long exposure to the sun

Amarone Cuslanus

The heart of Valpolicella Classica keeps the oldest memories of grape drying techniques. Here, among vineyards on stone wall-terraces and ancient hamlets, our Amarone defines the unique identity of the Marano valley, with a game of transparencies, changing fragrances of ripe fruit, dark spices and hints of chocolate and coffee. On the palate it surprises you by its unexspected freshness, typical of wines produced on high hill, by its balance and pleasant tannins that make it a wine suitable for long ageing. Our Amarone Riserva is named after Cuslanus, an ancient god worshipped in Valpolicella at the time of the Etruscans more than 2000 years ago.

Foja Tonda Casetta Albino Armani

The Casetta, called “Foja Tonda” (round leaf) in local dialect, is an indigenous red grape variety cultivated since ancient times in Valdadige, between the regions Veneto and Trentino. Since the market favored other more prolific grape varieties, little by little Foja Tonda disappeared until it became almost extinct. Luckily, Albino Armani rediscovered it in the 1980’s. The wine making team is still involved in research related to the genetic improvement of this ancient varietal. Today Foja Tonda is considered the symbol of our company and is included in the “Conservatoria”, a collection of old indigenous varietals from the Adige Valley, witnessing the passion that binds us to our land. This wine, with its distinct personality, enchants and intrigues the wine lover with its ancestral origin. It is recognizable for its scents of dried prune, wild cherry, cinnamon, tobacco and musk that underscores its wild origin. On the palate it is fresh and persistent. It evolves splendidly with balsamic and ethereal aromas after a few years of ageing.

Nera dei Baisi Albino Armani

A small vineyard at the entrance of our winery, welcomes the visitor. It is the “Conservatoria”, a collection of old indigenous varietals in danger of extinction from the Adige Valley. Among these, you will find the Nera dei Baisi. This vine gave us great results in terms of aromatic profile during the microvinifications carried out in collaboration with the Research Institute of San Michele all’Adige in Trentino. It is a red variety and the only surviving vine was found hanging down from a balcony in a small hamlet called “Baisi”, in the Trentino region. Nera dei Baisi has a bright ruby red color and an intense bouquet of ripe strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. In the mouth it is fresh and fragrant, silky, with low tannins, very easy to drink, with a well balanced acidity.
