The Manara brothers tend to about ten hectares in the heart of Valpolicella’s Classico zone, in positions coveted by many of their colleagues. The small and well-equipped winery is situated in the San Floriano valley, where Lorenzo, Fabio and Giovanni oversee all stages of production, from the vineyard to bottling. Much of their range is dedicated to the appellation’s classic typologies, interpreted with an eye for tradition, but there are also digressions dedicated to other wines. The Amarone Postera ’15 features rather soft aromas, slow to indulge, first timid, super-ripe fruit, then notes of rain-soaked leaves and spices. In the mouth it’s sapid, juicy, playing more on suppleness than on power. The Valpolicella Vecio Belo ’18, on the other hand, features fresher, more immediate aromas, with cherry playing a leading role. In the mouth it’s sapid, juicy, with nice tension.
