Additional information

Giacomo Montresor

One of Verona’s historic houses, founded by Giacomo Montresor in 1892, with a reputation built on high quality, affordable Valpolicella and Amarone. In recent years the range has grown steadily with vineyards being developed in Friuli and northern Veneto, around Conegliano.The winery was family-owned until 2018 when Montresor was acquired by Cevico, a co-operative group based in Emilia Romagna, with 2 highly regarded Veneto co-ops as co-investors. Since then a major investment programme has transformed the company – with modern production facilities and a new winemaking team rejuvenating quality across the board, while access to high quality grapes from the Veneto co-owners has enabled some excellent new wines to be developed.

Production

Made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes cultivated in selected vineyards on the hills of the most ancient part of Valpolicella. The late harvested grapes are air dried in wooden racks in special lofts until February of the following year when they are crushed. The wine is aged, part in French oak casks and part in barrel, for 3 years and then spends a further 6 months in bottle before release.
