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.
"Relaxed, restrained and impressive. Traditional in it's make-up and as close to delicate as ripasso gets."
"Dark chocolate, dark fruit, smoky oak and spice permeate this rich example. Perfect for venison."
"This is ‘happy wine’. Something southern French about the nose. On the palate, red cherries and dark plums in harmony. Long Finish."
The family estate extends over 4 hectares situated in Negrar, the heart of Valpolicella, in a place called Bessole. These vineyards are a precious source of great satisfaction thanks to their southern-east exposure and their soil, which is well balanced
