Damoli Vinery is a family business situated in Valpolicella Classico appellation. Production is intentionally kept low to maintain high quality. The rising success of this estate comes from the constant attention to detail of Daniele and Bruno Damoli, together with the particular geographic location of the plantings. They also like to air dry some of their grapes, known as Appassimento method, which concentrates sugar in the grapes producing more flavourful wines.
The Veneto is an extremely important region in the north-east of Italy, stretching from the west at the shores of Lake Garda as far north as the Alps, the Austrian border and the Venetian hinterland. It is Italy’s largest wine-producing region. DOC wines represent well over a quarter of total production and include such well-known names as Valpolicella, Soave, Bardolino and Prosecco. Corvina and Garganega grape varieties are commonly used for red and white wines respectively, while sparkling wines from the Prosecco DOC are made from its namesake grape variety.
Ripasso” method is a technique that is done by the “re-passing” of the Valpolicella wine on the dried grape skins of Amarone, still warm and rich in sugar. The Valpolicella remains in contact with the pomace of Amarone for 10/12 days; during this period, a second alcoholic fermentation occurs.
