Guerrieri Rizzardi Azienda Agricola

In 1649 Carlo Rizzardi from Toscolano Maderno arrived in Valpolicella and bought the property of Pojega with the nearby vineyards of Calcarole and the estate of Rovereti. He built the cellar of Pojega. In 1913 Carlo Rizzardi married Giuseppina Guerrieri of Bardolino and the labels of the Guerrieri and the Rizzardi Wines were joined and from then on sold under a unique name: Guerrieri Rizzardi (first label 1914). The most ancient traces of grapevine cultivation in Valpolicella date back to the 5th century B.C. The vineyards are positioned in Negrar in the “classico zone”, a cluster of small valleys, where vines, olives, and cherries thrive. An excellent climate influenced by the mountains and nearby lake Garda.

Tasting Notes

A beautiful Soave wine from the vineyards of Costeggiola. Flavours and aromas of ripe white peach and pear are underpinned by a backbone of minerality giving it a long and persistent finish.

Food Matches

Ideal as an accompaniment to white meat (poultry and rabbit); goat's milk cheese and meaty fish.
