Marcello and Cristina Vaona oversee the family winery on the hills of the Marano valley, about 10 organically cultivated hectares dedicated to olive trees and, above all, grapes. Here the traditional pergola of the older plots alternates with more recent, espalier-trained vineyards. Their position (mainly facing south and south-east) combines with air currents and good temperature fluctuations for a range that’s characterized by dynamism and suppleness, even when it comes to wines obtained through partial drying of the grapes, as in the case of their Amarone. And it was the Amarone ’16 that most impressed, a wine that stands at the crossroads between tradition and modernity. Complex aromas see fruit crossed by whiffs of sulfur and undergrowth. In the mouth it’s generous but not opulent, supported by nice acidity and pleasantly rough tannins. The Ripasso ’18 also delivers, broad and multifaceted on the nose, in the mouth it wins you over with its tension and length.
