Monte dei Roari

The historic Monte dei Roari winery is located in Mamaor, on the hills of Valeggio sul Mincio, just over 10 km south-east of Lake Garda, the area of ​​choice for Custoza and Bardolino. In 2007 it was taken over by Stefano, the founder's grandson, and by his wife Alessia. After several years of work experience in large companies in the food industry, it is their background and the awareness of the quantities and types of non-grape products allowed in winemaking that make them immediately choose the path of organic conversion into the vineyard. (biodynamic since 2011) and work in the cellar without tricks. The company has 10 hectares divided into small plots of moraine deposits and clayey-calcareous soils, where the white varieties (garganega, trebbiano, fernanda, trebbianello and sauvignonasse) prevail, and the ferrous ones, where instead the red grape varieties (corvina , rondinella, merlot and rossanella, called in Valpolicella molinara). In the cellar there are steel and concrete tanks and some terracotta amphorae; filtrations or clarifications are not allowed and the doses of sulfur dioxide (if added) are very low. All this contributes to the return of wines with great drinkability, both still and refermented, fresh, pure, savory and thirst-quenching. Among the company's distinctive products we can mention Bardolino Chiaretto DOC and Custoza DOC, both characterized by a simple freshness.
