The history of winery Aldrighetti begins in 1818 with the purchase of some lots around the locality “Bignele”, a place surrounded by the nature of the classic Valpolicella hills, near a small country village called Valgatara (which is now an outlying suburb hamlet of Marano di Valpolicella).

From time their family has been of following family traditions and has tilled the land with passion and devotion for years. The winery stretches on a hilly land, with 8 hectares of vineyards, located at about 300 meters above sea level, and is run by two brothers Luigi and Angelo Aldrighetti together with their children Nicola and Silvia.

Traditionally made, authentic Amarones like this one are known as "meditation wines" in Italy, meant to be sipped and savoured while contemplating meaningful thoughts. But it is also one of the local wines of the Veneto region, a delicious partner of local dishes like hare cooked in wine and carrots together with polenta.

Tasting Notes

It’s cool and ever so fresh, reflecting the season. Springs onto a light bodied and lean palate, which has basil and lime and crunchy tannins on ripe cassis fruit. Vibrant and bright with a peppery tarragon bitterness to finish – what a delight. And no hurry here; it will hang on very nicely.

Food Pairing

Wonderful with lamb. Ideal companion for game, grilled, and braised meats, roasts and full-flavoured mature cheeses.
