ABOUT THIS WINE

If Amarone is the full-bodied brother of spritely Valpolicella, then where does Pario, with a shot of Ripasso, fit into the family tree? Once the regal triumvirate of Veneto grapes bask on drying tables for 100 days, the first pressing of Amarone takes place. But, there is still plenty of tannic treasure and complexity left in those pressed skins. Valpolicella is passed over the skins to create a wine that typically rests between the enjoyable nature of Valpolicella and the decadent bravado of Amarone.

Winemaker Luca Fedrigo lends his skills to the blending process – the magical touch that creates the elegant and lively favors of Pario from carefully tended vines and meticulous hand sorting of drying grapes. Everyone experiences their own flavorful epiphany with Pario – renowned for its well-built structure, palate pleasing acidity and mesmerizing complexity and balance.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

The Estate takes its name from a stone arch, called “Arco di Giove”, well in sight on the road to Negrar (one of the seven historic Valpolicella counties) and near the farmhouse where the Fedrigo family resided until a few years ago. The arch, dating from 1500/1600, was one of a series of seven arches along
the hillside path near S. Vito di Negrar. It is a name that awakens memories of the past for Luca Fedrigo, which he has wanted to pass into the wines produced by him; Luca, has worked for many years in a prestigious Valpolicella’s cellar, which must his experience and gratitude, it proposes like a young establishment but with an ancient hearth, dynamic and well-based, able to offer a product that is unique for its origins and which retains all the traditions tied to Valpolicella.
