This estate was founded in 1883 close to Mezzane di Sotto (loc. Giare) and has been always supplying grapes to the neighboring producers. From 2007 they have started to bottle their own crop under the brand Massimago. The basic concept is that a good wine must express the interaction bewtween place and grape varieties, and always link to the local heritage and tradition. The soil here are mostly clayous with a strong dominance of reddish calcaire wich altogether give great fruit and minerality. Camilla Rossi Chauvenet, owner and factotum of the winery, believes her wines have to balance alcohol and softness with acidity and minerality. So vineyards are managed in a way to keep suitable acidity to sustain the ripeness of the fruits.
The Valpolicella Superiore is a clear example of this idea: lovely freshness and acidity balance the big body and alcohol making a beautifully integrated and measured wine. The basic Valpolicella is refreshing and delicate with floral and spicy notes. The Amarone is rich, deep, complex with dried red fruits and port-like nuances, still with great acidity that gives balance and call for another glass.
