QUALITY PROJECT

In 1989 Cantina Valpolicella Negrar launched an articulated Quality Project: first it identified particularly suitable areas of Valpolicella, putting in a great deal of hard work alongside the grape-growers in order to obtain grapes of extraordinary quality. Their careful selection led to the creation of important crus and a line dedicated to the Domìni Veneti brand.

AMARONE ESPRESSIONI

 

Amarone Espressioni is an oenological project that has become reality: five different crus of Amarone, Castelrotto, Villa, San Rocco, Mazzurega and Monte, each representative of a different valley of the Valpolicella Classica area.

Amarone Espressioni is the synthesis of the Domìni Veneti philosophy, the result of a research project that has lasted over 10 years and conducted in collaboration with the Experimental Institute for Winemaking in Conegliano Veneto and the Winemaking Centre of the Province of Verona.

This project takes us beyond the meaning of Amarone, mainly characterised by drying techniques and native vines, to emphasise the different terroirs: new and unknown values on which to base originality and future competitiveness.

COLLEZIONE PRUVINIANO

 

Domìni Veneti continues its journey of discovery and characterisation of the terroirs with a new interpretation of Amarone, Ripasso and Valpolicella Superiore in the valley of Marano within the Valpolicella Classica area. The resulting profile is of subtle elegance, with great ageing potential over time.

The Collezione Pruviniano was created in Prognol, a small hamlet of Marano di Valpolicella, where Cantina Valpolicella Negrar has had a new production plant since 2015. The collection has been given the ancient name of the valley of Marano, Provinius, which was mentioned in eighth-century documents and includes the basins of the progni (streams) of Marano and Fumane. The lands of Marano have a great deal of personality: they are cold and have loose soils that must be worked with in order to best interpret the variegated intertwining of perfumes and aromas in the wine made here. It gives rise to elegant and balanced wines with measured sugars and flavours and aromas which are more balsamic than fruity. Its abundance of water, the large number of Veronese testimonies dedicated to the goddess Minerva and the unaltered sacredness of the small church dedicated to the Madonna of Santa Maria in Valverde have led us to attribute a feminine character to the valley, which is also expressed in an elegant label created by graphic designer Manuela Fischetto.
