Located in the center of Valpolicella on one of the five ridges that descend the valley (which resemble the fingers of a hand), Monte Dall'Ora is the creation of Carlo Venturini and his wife Alessandra Zantedeschi. Both are from vignaioli families, but decided to start fresh with their own estate in 1995. At the time, the purchased terraces were in terrible condition and everything had to be rebuilt.

Instead of worrying about lower yields for higher concentration, Carlo prefers focusing his energy on balance in the vineyard: this essentially means promoting agricultural and natural biodiversity instead of just vine tending. Grass grows free, with cherry and olive trees complimenting the entirety of the vineyard. This work philosophy continues through the winemaking: "Finding the equilibrium in the vineyard brings balance in the cellar."

Tasting Notes

The color is bright red with beautiful tears. The nose has the scent of overripe fruit, balsamic and spicy aromas. The palate is long, dense and complex.

Food Pairing

This wine generally goes well with poultry, beef or veal dishes.

Grape Variety: Corvina
