Produced from Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes grown in the Veneto. Appassimento refers to the process by which the grapes are dried for a few months before being pressed and vinified. This technique is more common in the Veneto than elsewhere in Italy. The resulting wines are rich with some residual sweetness.
The illustrious Montresor family moved from France to Italy at the start of the 19th Century, and settled in the Veneto region near Lake Garda. In 1892 Cantina Giacomo Montresor was established in Verona, and remains family-owned to this day.
Giorgio Montresor produces a portfolio of wines which increasingly rival the offerings of the region’s more fashionable names – harnessing modern technology to craft the best wines from each site, across their 100ha of vineyard, in Valpolicella and Garda.
Great with barbecues, slow-cooked and caramelised meat dishes, or strong-flavoured cheeses.
