Tenuta Fumanelli in the heart of Valpolicella winery is the perfect location to live the experience of an ancient Italian winery.
Tenuta di Squarano is located in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica region, on a hill surrounded by cypresses.
Here the Marquises Fumanelli began to produce grapes and fine wines from 1470 on the remains of ancient Roman plants. There are numerous inscriptions and archaeological artefacts in the villa, including the remains of working environments for the production of wine and an ancient underground dolium (large amphora) intended for its conservation.
Since 1998 the ancient cellars, after a careful restoration, have returned to host the aging of the classic wines of Valpolicella in the oak barrels.
Just as in the fifteenth century aging takes place in the ancient tuff barriques while the winemaking is supported by the most modern technologies.
