Currently, there are 22 hectares growing corvina gentile, corvinone and rondinella grapes. Close by there are approx 7000 square meters of Olive tree cultivation in the’ high valleys’ of Fumane, from these Olive trees , the local extra virgin olive oil is made. The farming methods used in this area are half from the hills of the oldest vineyards in Verona and half from the hills that have been the home to vineyards for the last ten years or more. Every bottle of wine for us is important, so for this reason we dedicate the maximum care and attention whether it be Valpolicella Classico or Amarone. Every grape is given a vine especially for its production, for example; the grapes from Il Pozzetto (Fumane) are used for Valpolicella Classico, the grapes from Colle San Michele (Bure alto) are used for Valpolicella Classico Superiore, the grapes from Monte Solane (San Giorgio di Valpolicella) are used for Valpolicella Ripasso, the grapes from Valle Alta (Fumane) are used for Amarone Classico della Valpolicella and for Recioto della Valpolicella are used the grapes from Valle Lena. We consult with the well-known grape experts; Marco Simonith and Pierpaolo Sirch for the management of our vineyards.
Unique vineyards, unique wines
Within agriculture, winegrowing is one of the areas that most strongly links the product to the distinctive characteristics of the land. Year after year, the non-invasive and respectful approach to oenology produces wines that demonstrate the interaction between each grape variety’s very own characteristics, the climate and the soil conditions.
Tenute Ugolini’s Wines: Ugolini and Mòra
For us, each wine represents a different illustration of our land. At first, Tenute Ugolini created the Ugolini brand – a name synonymous for wines that perfectly showcase the complexity and variety of styles our vineyards in Valpolicella produce. More recently, we have added Mòra – a distinctive wine and the result of perfecting our knowledge of the region and combining it with the Valpolicella’s traditional method of wine production, albeit with a modern twist.
