Philosophy of Roberto Mazzi Winery

You must learn to interpret the vintages and balance them with the drying process, choose the most appropriate aging to shape the mighty substance of these great wines without weighing it down with woody aromas, because the wines can evolve, become ethereal and full of flavors .

Style of Roberto Mazzi’s wines

The inside of the old cellar in Valpolicella. Amarone tasting at Roberto Mazzi The interior of the cellar will leave you stunned In the vineyard we have a careful selection of the best grapes, which are harvested by hand and placed on the famous arele for a few months, coming to lose 40% of the weight. The happy combination of factors such as passion, the care put into the work and some of the finest cru of all Valpolicella, results in an outstanding production.

The wine style is classic, elegant, played on austerity and balance that comes from a ground-based on silt, clay and limestone. Drunk now are great, but the aging potential is fabulous, at least 10-15 years, above all for the Amarone.
