Stefano Accordini, Veneto
Stefano Accordini is a traditional Italian family-run vineyard that started making wine in the early 1900s. The vineyards are spread across 25 hectares and are located at the highest point of the Valpolicella Classico area. This unique location creates an individual terroir that allows Stefano Accordini to craft wines with distinct flavours and bouquets.
Corvina is a traditional Italian grape mostly planted in northeast Italy. Its thick skin and propensity to ripen late make this grape ideal for air drying. Corvina wines are typically light-bodied and high in acidity with notes of sour cherry, almonds and herbs.
Rondinella grapes are indigenous to Italy and are almost exclusively grown in the Veneto region. Hardly used in single varietal wines, Rondinella is one of the essential grapes in Valpolicella. Ruby red in colour with low tannins, Rondinella wines tend to be neutral with distinct herbal notes.
Molinara is an indigenous Italian grape exclusively planted in the Veneto region. Molinara produces wines with good acidity but lacks distinct character, colour and flavour. Therefore, Molinara is almost solely used in blended wines and sometimes used in Valpolicella blends.
