This Valpolicella does exactly what a good ‘valpol’ should. It is fruit driven and refreshing with a long and pleasant finish. Tannins are soft and the palate is smooth with plenty of plum like fruit, making this a wonderful red wine either on its own or with traditional Italian cuisine.

Wine Makers

Pier Paolo Antolini Valpolicella. by Pier Paolo Antolini

We came across Pier Paolo Antolini and his brother Stephano while on a quest for new Italian wines. We heard rave reviews about an up and coming winemaker, known by locals as Amarone Boy. So we made a trip to Marano di Valpolicella, 25km north of Verona to Pier Paolo Antolini’s vineyard to see what Amarone Boy was all about.

As soon as we arrived, we realised Pier Paolo was our type of producer. He’s energetic, enthusiastic and animated even by Italian standards.  Pier Paolo and his brother Stephano care deeply about their land and the wine it produces, and their passion is infectious. Their vineyard is small, just 7.5 hectares, and located on very stony ground. In fact, the ground around Marano di Valpolicella is so stony that it had to be completely cleared before it could be cultivated. Stephano and Pier Paolo did most of this work by hand, so every square meter of the vineyard is precious. 

Pier Paolo really does raise his vines like children; each bunch of grapes receives personal care and attention. This comes through in the wines. All Antolini wines possess intense aromas and a sumptuous smoothness, due in part to the temperature variation Marano di Valpolicella experiences between day and night. This variation is just another part of what Pier Paolo calls the Vital Flow in his vineyard, the synergy between the land, the grapes and the winemakers. It’s this Vital Flow that’s ultimately responsible the fantastic wines that exemplify the best of Valpolicella.

In The Press

Press Reviews

"Delivering as a Valpolicella should, this wine fills your mouth with a wash of plum and fruity flavours. Smooth and refreshing, this is as good on its own as it is with pizza or charcuterie." Corinna Hardgrave, The Irish Independent.
