Description

Casa Vinicola Bennati has from its outset been devoted to producing the local wine Valpolicella, specifically the ageing of Amarone. These are still the flagship wines of their portfolio.

Grapes for Amarone are harvested some three weeks later than usual to allow for a greater concentration. The bunches are put in small crates inside the “fruttaio”, a large room where ventilation is controlled by opening windows, allowing the grapes to shrivel.

The producer, Casa Vinicola Bennati is an old established house, founded in 1920 by Annibale Bennati, in the area of Cazzano di Tramigna, just a few kilometres from Soave. Annibale was the son of the famous Antonio, or ‘Toni Recioto’ as he was called in honour of the raisin wine of that name.

In this vinicultural heartland, their vineyards are in a prime position and are protected by the surrounding hills. High quality is assured by astute management and hand-picking is still carried out with optimum care.

In the early years the company restricted its activity to producing esteemed local wines, specifically the ageing of Amarone – which are still the flagship wines of the range.

Subsequently, under the winemaking direction of a younger generation of the family, Bennati has extended its interest to international grape varietals and wines from other areas, concentrating on both the character of the region and the quality of varietals.
