Vivaldi is the new project of Cantina Valpolicella Negrar, which focuses on Verona and aims to unite and represent the main districts of the Veronese area under a common name: Soave, Valpolicella, Custoza, Bardolino and Garda.

One of the most important representatives of this territory is Valpolicella, one of the three great Italian red wine districts, along with Tuscany and Piedmont.

Vivaldi’s Valpolicella is a territory that stretches from Valle d’Illasi (east of Verona) to the borders of Val d’Adige, through the beautiful Valpolicella Classica. In this journey, Vivaldi brings along the spirit of Cantina Valpolicella Negrar, four times the best cooperative winery of the year in Italy, awarded by the magazine Weinwirtschaft, located in the historic area of Valpolicella Classica. Today it is the owner of the largest drying room, where the grapes are dried for months before being used to produce Amarone, Appassimento and Ripasso wines.

The winery participates in the Vivaldi project, offering its expertise acquired over the years in mastering the techniques and the latest technological developments of the Appassimento method.

It is an area linked to the ancient tradition of the Appassimento, the art of drying the grapes to concentrate the aromas and sugars, famous throughout the world as the process used to produce Amarone, Ripasso and Recioto della Valpolicella, and thanks to which it is possible to place these wines among the top quality productions of the entire Italian peninsula.

Corvina is the queen of the autochthonous grapes of this area, used up to 95% in the production of Amarone. Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara are other varieties used in Valpolicella.
