The antique vineyards of Squarano are situated in the heart of Valpolicella area, built by the Marquess of Fumanelli during the XVth Century and the villa is decorated with inscriptions and a temple dedicated to the Flora goddes. The story tells that Romans hereby planted vines that have been growing for a millennium until the first excellent wine production in 1470.
The ageing process takes place in old tophus tanks dating back to XVIIth Century, while the wine production is supported by the newest technologies, matching tradition and innovation.
