6 Wine Tasting in Valpolicella Classica: the cradle of Amarone
Our vineyards are on average 30/50 years old and are cultivated following the typical “pergola veronese” or “filare speronato” (guyot) methods. All producing procedures of our wine take place within our small farm, Agricola Franchini. Tradition and pride coming from the cultivation of our own vineyard is priceless, so we make sure that very operation in the fields is done manually, from the pruning to the natural fertilization, with patience and respect for our nature. For this reasons, we place these aspects at the first places.
