Antonio Fattori and his brother Giovanni took over the family business in the early ’80s. Prior to then,
the estate prospered under the direction of their father and the cellars served as a resource for base
wines produced for neighbouring properties to be used under varied labels.
Antonio took a decision in the early ’90s to produce his own wine and his own label.
In 2007 the Fattori family bought 30 hectares in the Valpolicella DOC area in Montecchia di Crosara in the east side of the Valpolicella Classica area.
They decided to keep and maintain unchanged a small part of the vineyard and, “in the while”, remove the old vines and plant new ones in nearly all of the property. In July 2011 a new vineyard of about 4 ha was planted.
On January 2012 another 7 ha of Corvina and Corvinone varieties, in the higher part of the vineyard, and mainly Rondinella in the lower part have been added.
