Ca' la Bionda is located in the commune of Marano di Valpolicella in the heart of the Classico zone of Valpolicella. Founded by Pietro Castellani in 1902, the estate is comprised of over 29 hectares of vineyards that range from the old-vine, pergola-trained parcels carved into hillside terraces from which Alessandro makes the savory and powerful Amarone and Ripasso wines to the guyot-trained parcels of the flagship vineyard, CasalVegri. All of Ca' la Bionda’s vines are rooted in limestone-rich soils that bring out a chalky minerality in their Corvina-based wines, unlike almost any other producer in the region. Practicing organic farming for a generation (certified for 7 years), Alessandro and his brother Nicola — their family’s fourth generation — have carefully selected the best of their own vines to propagate as they plant new sites.

The Ravazzol Amarone is a blend of 70% Corvina, 20% Corvinone and 10% Rondinella from 50-70 year old vines grown on the hillside vineyard of Ravazzol. Immediately after harvest in September and October, the bunches of grapes are placed on cane drying racks until January or February in order to dry out the grapes, concentrating flavors and helping to delivering the unique aromas and structure of Amarone. After drying, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel and aged in new, large oak barrels for 36 months. The resultant wine is rich and complex with flavors of sour cherries, blackberries and tobacco with fine tannins, suave viscosity and great length. Enjoy with slow cooked stews, char-grilled steaks, or on its own.
