From the Faithful Interpreter of Valpolicella Classico
Valpolicella Classico – as the name suggests – was the original wine produced in the region. It remains the most popular Valpolicella today and is produced in the largest quantities. The vineyards from which this is produced is owned by the Speri family in Valpolicella Classico area, lying in the municipalities of San Pietro in Cariano, Fumane and Negrar.
The Speri Winery, one of the historical families of Valpolicella, is an authoritative and faithful interpreter of Valpolicella Classico wines that has become, due to its uninterrupted traditions and strong territorial roots, a landmark in Italian winemaking.
In 2015, after practicing years of sustainable farming, the Winery achieved organic certification for all of the production.
The Speri family, respecting its territorial heritage, has always cultivated exclusively the native grape varieties of the Valpolicella zone (Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara and other indigenous varieties), making wine only from grapes coming from its own vineyards and itself overseeing the entire production process.
