Area: San Pietro di Cariano
Ripasso Superiore DOCG 2015 | 70% Corvina, Rondinella & others
In the municipality of Fumane, the inhabited area of Mazzurega (430 m) for five generations, the Ragno family has been cultivating their land and vinifying its own grapes. It also produces cherries and olives, obtaining a precious oil from the latter. In the first decades of the twentieth century, it offered its wine directly to two renowned taverns in Verona.
The vineyards, about 6-7 ha, are ideal for the cultivation of the vine, interspersed with numerous and characteristic dry stone walls, the marogne, with typical simple pergola arrangement that allows the best insolation and cultivation operations. Interspersed there are rows of olive trees and cherries which at the end of March, with flowering, offer a breathtaking view.
