Brigaldara

Italy Veneto | www.brigaldara.it

Owner Stefano Cesari is the intelligent, intense, innovative producer of Valpolicella Classico, Valpolicella Superiore and Amarone. Stefano once served as President of the Valpolicella Region Grower’s Association, where he dedicated his term to improving the quality of Valpolicella through low yields, improved viticultural practices, careful clone selection and modern winemaking techniques. While he farms the traditional grapes of the Valpolicella Classico D.O.C., his emphasis is on the higher-quality Corvina over Rondinella and Molinara. He produces distinctive wines of very high quality from 15 hectares of estate vineyards near the village of San Floriano in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico zone.

“Success struck the Valpolicella area like lightning out of the clear blue sky, sometimes surprising the producers themselves, who were suddenly thrust into a new and complex world. Stefano Cesari has been able to handle the situation with calm and lucidity. In fact, his operation is one of the most interesting local estates today with excellent vineyards, a range of wines strongly rooted in tradition and, very importantly, fine quality that represents really good value for the money.”
Gambero Rosso, 2010

“Brigaldara can be counted on for exuberant, flashy wines. With time some of the lushness that is present upon release melts away and the wines acquire lovely complexity. Recent bottles of the estate’s 1986 and 2001 were superb.”
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, Feb 2013
