Being part of a region like Veneto, traditionally dedicated to the production of wine, Valpantena is an area rich in wine history and represents one of the sub-areas of Valpolicella.

Valpolicella Doc Valpantena

Located east of Verona, Valpantena is also famous for its association with one of the most well-known types of wine at a national and international level. Valpolicella DOC Valpantena can be the first stop on the ideal route for wine lovers.

Amarone della Valpolicella Valpantena

The link between Valpantena and Valpolicella is solid and enhanced by the presence of extremely rich wines. Amarone della Valpolicella in the Valpantena area is a classic version of the well-known dry red passito wine which, with its ripe fruity hints and the reference to jams, is able to win over travelers who decide to discover this area.

Recioto della Valpolicella Valpantena

With the same grapes used to make Amarone, a characteristic wine is developed from the Valpantena area from which it takes its name due to the connection with the territory in which it is made. Considerable as a sort of close relative of Amarone, from which it differs mainly in the final part of the processing, Recioto della Valpolicella Valpantena comes from native vines of the area such as Corvinone and Rondinella.

Ripasso della Valpolicella Valpantena

The production of Ripasso is also present in the same territory, which represents another ideal stage on the route to be undertaken in the Valpolicella della Valpantena. The term 'ripasso' is significant, as the wine of the same name is obtained with a particular technique which consists in resting the Valpolicella for about twenty days in the containers in which the Amarone was pressed and from which it recovers its unmistakable and fascinating aroma.
