The Vino:

With a complex and ethereal nose, this Amarone has aromatic notes of cherries, blueberries and chocolate, combined with hints of sweet spice. Smooth and powerful, the palate is remarkably fresh and finishes with ripe fruit.

Producer Info:

La Giuva comprises a ten-hectare estate in the province of Verona, of which only five hectares are in production. From their first vintage in 2011, we have been consistently impressed by the aromatic character of La Giuva’s wines, derived from their cool site in the Val Squaranto, a small valley between the Valpantena and the valley of Mezzane. Their vineyards are planted on the top of the hill, at an elevation of 350 – 400 metres, and are picked later than most sites in the hills east of Verona.

The estate was founded by Alberto Malesani, famous in Italy as a former manager of both Fiorentina and Parma (where he won the UEFA cup in 1999). La Giuva is a compound of his daughters’ names, Giulia and Valentina, who have also been involved in the business. The wines are made by consultant winemaker Lorenzo Caramazza, formerly of Cantina Valpantena. In 2023 the Veronesi family of the Calzedonia group purchased the estate.

All the La Giuva wines blend Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella, while the Amarone and Valpolicella Superiore also include a small proportion of Oseleta, a speciality of the region. The grapes for the Amarone are dried until the beginning of January. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine is aged in oak for 24 months.

The balance, concentration and aromatic intensity of the La Giuva wines set them apart from the crowd in Valpolicella and make the estate one of the region’s rising stars. Production is tiny and won’t exceed 50,000 bottles in a good year with all vineyards in production.
