We wanted to join together our experiences to generate something new and unique in a part of Valpolicella dedicated to the prince of Veneto wines, the Amarone and we now have an ambitious objective: to enhance the local viticulture to produce a great Valpolicella.
We have linked the technical expertise of the Antica Casa Vinicola Santi with the viticultural potential which Giacomo Galtarossa knows how to extract from his property.
With the invaluable assistance of an experienced agronomist, Gian Piero Romana, we have identified the best plots in order to obtain even more from them.
Only part of the property is devoted to our project: reconverting, selecting and replanting we have made an estate within an estate, with the most acclaimed parcels earmarked for the production of wines for the Galtarossa selection.
The vineyards of Tenuta Galtarossa are located in one of the most esteemed wine districts of Valpolicella, between the Communes of San Pietro in Cariano and Negrar, where the microclimate and the special soil combine in a matchless synergy.
Great care has been taken with the selection of indigenous plants and with the choice of new clones to introduce to the domain.
Today there are 80 hectares under vine, mainly corvine, molinara and rondinella. Nor have we failed to introduce international varieties such as merlot, cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay.
