ll Monte Caro
The Monte Caro winery is located in Mezzane di Sotto, in the province of Verona. The winery is located on a hill 300 m above sea level, on soils ranging from clay with basalt rock substratum to strongly limestone and stony, and enjoys an exceptional microclimate dry and ventilated thanks to the presence of air coming from the north and the soil temperature higher than normal, due to its volcanic origin. The winery was born from an idea of Enzo, father of the current owners, a photographer who in 1986 discovered a hilly terrain in Mezzane di Sotto and, together with his wife Carla, decided to undertake the agricultural adventure. Over the years they set up the vineyard and the olive trees, and later built the rural house, thus giving life to the estate. Today, his father Enzo, who takes care of the agricultural work, joined his sons; Giorgio, an engineer specialized in renewable energy with an oenological vocation, sommelier and curator of all wines, Emanuela, a lover of photography, but above all viticulturist and responsible for the image of the winery. The philosophy of Il Monte Caro is to produce wines in a healthy and genuine environment, with the desire to bring to the table every day a natural wine of excellence. The cultivated hectares are 7 where we find the typical grapes of Valpolicella: Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella, and some rows of Cabernet Sauvignon. The care of the vineyard is in total agreement with nature, and only the best grapes, which are selected manually during the harvest, are taken to the cellar, where they are vinified in sponatnea fashion without the use of chemicals. Two wines produced; Valpolicella Superiore DOC and Amarone Monte Caro DOCG.
