Corte Giara is a winery located in the Veneto region of Italy, specifically in the Valpolicella area. The winery was founded in 1989 as a project by Allegrini, a well-known family winery in the region, with the aim of creating high-quality wines that express the characteristics of the Valpolicella terroir.
Corte Giara produces a range of wines, including Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarone, and Recioto. The winery focuses on sustainable and environmentally friendly practices in its vineyards and winemaking process.
The Valpolicella wines of Corte Giara are made primarily from the Corvina grape, blended with smaller amounts of Rondinella and Molinara. The Ripasso is made by fermenting Valpolicella on the skins of dried grapes used in the production of Amarone. Amarone della Valpolicella is a rich, full-bodied wine made from dried grapes that give it a complex flavor profile with notes of dried fruits, tobacco, and spices. Recioto della Valpolicella is a sweet wine made from dried grapes that are pressed before they are fully fermented, resulting in a wine with a high residual sugar content.
Overall, Corte Giara produces wines that are representative of the Valpolicella region, with a focus on quality and sustainability.
