VALPOLICELLA SUPERIORE 
CASE VECIE
DOC

“Located in Grezzana, north of Verona, at an altitude of 450 metres above sea level, lies the Case Vecie (Old Houses) vineyard. Abandoned for a long time, it was entirely replanted in 1994. Taking advantage of climate change, our friends at Brigaldara
winery decided to buy the property and plant Corvinone and Corvina to make this amazing Valpolicella. Here, the ripening of the grapes is subject to important thermal inversions between day and night that give the wine a particular spiciness to the
nose and a unique complexity.”
