Corte Figaretto is a family-run farm in the heart of Valpantena, a valley situated north of Verona. In this southerly exposed valley lie its precious vineyards, suitable for the production of great red wines.
The Climate - The essentially Mediterranean climate, characterised by contained rainfall, is further tempered in the summer months by the evening breezes originating from the Lessino Mountains. These breezes cool the day's heat, guaranteeing a wide temperature range between day and night, thus allowing the grapes to reach maturation rich in polyphe nolic and anthocyanic substances, which give our wines an unmistakeable personality.
Harvesting - Harvesting is done strictly by hand, the grapes are harvested in small crates, vineyard by vineyard, and taken to the cellar to rest for a few weeks (the time-span may vary depending on the variety.) In order to keep the individual varieties separate, the cellar is fitted with small, vineyard-sized tanks.
The Wine Cellar - This is where our wines are born and where they rest, where aromas and perfumes are defined. There, vaulted ceilings hidden deep in the earth conceal oaken barrels and precious barriques, in a special atmosphere that creates the ideal habitat where the character of each wine unfolds and matures to maximum perfection.
