The. Agr. CAMPAGNOLA

Company born at the beginning of 900 today it is one of the most important productive realities of the panorama of companies in Valpolicella. Founded by Carlo Campagnola and his wife Caterina Zardini who, despite her husband's untimely death, he always believed in their dream: working the land with passion and producing the best wines. The first recognition comes in 1907 for the “best Reccioto” at the Verona Wine Show, what is currently VinItaly. The turning point was in 1926, when Giuseppe, one of the 10 sons, decides to buy "Antica Osteria ai Portoni Bossari" in Verona, with the idea of ​​proposing their own wines. From there began the continuous growth: in the 1940s they bought what is still the current headquarters of the company in Valgatara and Giuseppe took over most of the vineyards from his brothers. To date, the Campagnola company also actively collaborates with over 50 winegrowers who confer the productions. Basically they are a single large family with a single common philosophy: best grapes for best wines with total love for their lands.

Amarone della Valpolicella it is the wine of reference of the Campagnola company. It comes from the selection of the best Corvina Corvinone and Rondinella grapes grown in the municipality of Marano che, before being squeezed, are left to dry for about 100 days and then softly pressed with a subsequent maceration phase of 30 days. The refinement of the wine is divided by 60% in large barrels of 50 hl and the remainder in barrique and then assembled and finished with more 6 months in the bottle. The result is a rich and complex wine, with long aging potential, which is said to have been born from a mistake, an oversight. Legend has it that Amarone was born from a Recioto barrel that had been forgotten by the Cellar Master of the Cantina di Negrar. In this way the wine had gone on with the natural fermentation, transforming all the sugars into alcohol, and therefore becoming a dry wine. In the glass it has a deep garnet red, intense; the nose reveals hints of ripe red fruit such as cherry, plum and vanilla aromas, spices and almond. On the palate it is warm and velvety, full, with tannins present but not too intrusive with a very persistent dry finish.
