The winery is located in Valpolicella Classica, on the hills of Fumane in the Cavalo hamlet, 500 meters above sea level. Corte Alta spans 10 hectares of vineyards, all cultivated with traditional Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella grape varieties, native to the region. Created by the Accordini Family, this project began in 2008, driven by the innovative ideas of Giacomo, Paolo, and Marco, supervised by Daniele and Tiziano Accordini. Corte Alta proudly produces the two flagship wines of the region: Amarone and Ripasso della Valpolicella. These fine wines, crafted with meticulous care, are the pride and joy of their winemaking tradition. The winery, surrounded by vineyards, enjoys a splendid panoramic view, with the extraordinary backdrop of the Lessini Mountains and a south-facing terrace overlooking Verona, an ideal fusion of art, wine, and terroir.
Amarone della Valpolicella
Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG became an international phenomenon in the 1990s. The name Amarone means “big bitter,” yet despite this moniker, consumer reaction to this bold wine has made it a global success. At its best, Amarone shows beguiling concentration and structure balanced by plushness and elegance. Flavours of dark berries, cocoa and raisin are a result of the winemaking style. Amarone is made with grapes that are dried on mats or hung from rafters for weeks or months after harvest. This process, called appassimento, concentrates the flavours and sugars. The shrivelled grapes are then fermented to dryness, which results in a big, rich wine with robust alcohol levels that can near 17% alcohol by volume.
