Additional information

Casalforte

Casalforte is Cantine Riondo Winery’s premium line and represents the finest interpretation of the winemaking tradition of the territory to which it belongs. The line includes DOC and varietal wines from the Veneto region, elegant and full-bodied wines that pair perfectly with the most complex and sophisticated dishes of Italian and international cuisine. The name is a tribute to the typical 'casali' (farmhouses) found on many of the winegrowing partners’ estates, who have been skilfully tending their land for countless generations with the 'fortitude' of spirit and passion that has always distinguished them.

Production

After a careful selection of Valpolicella grapes with high sugar content, vinification takes place with the Ganimede system where the grape skins and wine are continuously mixed in order to extract color and tannins. During the winter, Valpolicella wine is passed over the skins remaining from the production of Amarone using the traditional “Ripasso” tecnique, which increases the alcohol, body and perfumes of the wine. The resulting wine is aged partly in stainless steel and partly in oak wood casks for 12 months.
