Stefano Accordini’s family involvement with wine started early in the 20th century when Stefano’s father Gaetano Accordini bought 5 ha of vineyards in the hills between Verona and Lake Garda. Stefano continued his father’s passion for producing Valpolicella wine on their family vineyards all his life and was followed by his sons Daniele and Tiziano (pictured). In turn, the current generation of Accordinis; Giacomo, Paolo, and Marco, have inherited the love for Valpolicella and a place in their family enterprise.
It might seem like stating the obvious, but you get something really special when four successive generations dedicate themselves to producing and refining one particular style of wine. With a total of 10 ha under vine, the Accordindis know every inch of their land intimately. The vineyards have south-eastern exposure and a balanced soil composition perfect for growing the Corvine, Rondinelle and Corvinone grapes that go into the Accordini Valpolicellas.
"Perfumed with ripe Morello cherries. Good depth of sappy rosehip and red-berry fruits, juicy and delicious. Finishing with a cocktail cherry. Try with a lightly grilled tuna steak and a chilli salsa."
The intuition to produce grapes of Valpolicella mountain with unique and unmistakable characteristics became the focus of a series of studies: they began on the soil, then on the choice of rootstock.
