Lorenzo Begali, a strong-willed vine grower born in 1943, has managed to transform what was until the mid-1980s an old grape farm into one of the most interesting producers in Valpolicella. The style of their wines, which interpret the territory with sensitivity and insight, is characterized by a certain boldness. Lorenzo also counts on Adriana, his longtime partner, and their children Tiliana and Giordano, for support across all stages of production. The Amarone Monte Ca ‘Bianca never fails to make the weight of its class felt, with the 2016 Riserva putting in another performance for the ages. Fruit stands out clear, focused and untarnished on a background of spices and medicinal herbs, sensation that are even clearer in the mouth, where the wine proves compact and crisp. The Recioto (same vintage) is quite different, a wine marked by aromas of blackberry and cherry jam, endowed with an overwhelming sweetness that finds balance in a exquisite acid verve.
