Novaia is a family business of the Vaona family in the high, northern part of Valpolicella. The work here is completely organic, with a relatively small production of about 40,000 bottles per year. The vineyards around Marano produce relatively refined and fruity wines due to their elevated position and poor stony soil. Even when the concentration levels increase, for example at Amarone and Ripasso, the wine retains its lightness and transparency. Great source of pure and uplifting wines, without the over-assertiveness that has become the norm in this appellation.
