The experience of Paladin projects in Valpolicella
|April 2018: Casa Lupo is born, a new chapter in the wine history of Paladin, which continues to tell us a long-term passion for wine.|
Today Paladin decides to renew its commitment as ambassador of the territory and the production of Italian wine in the world. To welcome this new challenge, we found one of the best terroir of the Venetian area, with a high wine-growing vocation and which has been producing wines for years, becoming a symbol of Italy in the world: The Valpolicella.
Val-polis-cellae is the Latin name of Valpolicella, that means valley with many wineries: it presents itself as a sweep of valleys, from Verona to the Garda Lake. Valpolicella extends for 240 square kilometres and its area is approximately 6.000 hectares of vineyards, alternated with olives and cherry trees. The structure of the soil is extremely rich, thanks to the presence of a varied, predominantly calcareous territory, which benefits from a mild climate, thanks to the proximity of the Lessini mountains and the lake.
A soft hilly landscape, with low-water ridges; one of the most precious and renowned areas in the Italian wine scene.
“Look at the heat of the sun that is turning into wine”
(Dante, Purgatorio, XXV, 77)
Mother of some of the most important Italian wines, the Valpolicella has got her darling child: the Amarone, the champion of Italian oenology, an extraordinary blend of Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grape.
Around this universe of practices and values Casa Lupo takes place, the Paladin brand that embodies the pride and importance of Valpolicella. This brand offers three excellent products on the market: Ripasso della Valpolicella, Amarone and Amarone Riserva.
