Corte Fornaledo Winery
Corte di Fornaledo is part of the Municipality of Marano, just above Purano. The Borghetti
family settled here in the 1800s, creating the wines carrying their name. It was 2009 when Siblings Giacomo and Francesco started off their winemaking business. Nevertheless, experience acquired over the years enabled them to rapidly become one of the leading quality Valpolicella producers.
In addition to stunning views, the valley treasures 8 hectares land - 6 of which vineyard, and the rest devoted to cherry trees, olive trees, fig flowers, and kaki trees - set 450 metres above sea level and facing south. The indigenous vines are between 15 and 40 years old. Corvina Veronese, Corvinone, Rondinella,
and other red grape varieties are used for winemaking.
The olive trees, some of which hundreds of years old, belong to the following varieties: Grignano, Favarol, Pendolino, Leccino, Frantoio, Casaliva,
plus others according to the guidelines. As a matter of fact, in addition to Amarone, Ripasso, Classico, Classico Superiore, Recioto,
and an Igt red, the winery also produces its own oil, intense yet delicate.
Environment awareness makes a corporate bonus. A photovoltaic system, installed in 2010, fully covers the company's requirements. In addition, Fornaledo's distinctive philosophy is also proven by its attitude towards disability; in particular, labels bearing Braille symbols suit the needs of visually impaired consumers.
