The Estate of Squarano where the Cantina Fumanelli is based is located in the heart of the most classic Valpolicella, on a hill surrounded by cypresses.
Here the Marquises Fumanelli began to produce grapes and fine wines from 1470 on the remains of ancient Roman plants.
The production is mainly focused on traditional wines, Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarone and Amarone Riserva but these are accompanied by other wines, including white ones, all produced strictly with grapes grown on the property.
The harvest, strictly carried out by hand, is the most important moment of the year:
Only the bunches that are healthy and ripe at the right point are selected, collected in crates and taken to the lofts and cellar where their transformation or drying period begins for the production of Amarone.
Even in the more technical phases, respect for raw materials is very important. The vinification technologies used make it possible to maintain and enhance the natural qualities of the grapes: the goal is to minimize the mechanical impact on the grapes and must and achieve excellent results starting first from great raw material.
Believing deeply in the value of a land as enchanting as that of Valpolicella pushes us to have the goal of enhancing and honouring it by producing quality wines with passion.
