Monteci is the antique nickname ,going back more than a century ago, which was given back then to the Righetti family in the Valpolicella region and which is highly used today to represent the profound bond with its roots. We are talking about five generations of high quality wine production integrating traditional methods of drying grapes and “working the must” with the latest wine-making techniques and instruments.
The array of Monteci wines stems from the experience of mature vine-growers passed on from generation to generation and from the professionalism that distinguishes our work. This unique bond between tradition and technology, authenticity and professionalism, uniformity and innovation all give life to a line of products that constantly unite themselves with the Valpolicella area: “Land of many fruits”, generous and fertile, and a “splendid county” of enchanting and charming landscapes.
For generations our family has owned and managed this important agricultural patrimony which takes in about 200 hectares only of vines, situated in the best areas of the Veneto region. Of these 200 , 70 hectares are situated in the historic area of the Classic Valpolicella for the production of the most renowned wines such as Amarone and Ripasso, and 45 hectares in the Lugana area cultivating the perfect grape for same name white wine which has recently had a lot of success on international markets.
The vines are placed at different altitudes and this in itself allows for harvests with different organoleptic characteristics thanks to the unique microclimates of every zone where the grapes can ripen. All this allows the cellar to obtain a productive variety which in turn makes everybody happy, from lovers of the more traditional aged wines like Amarone and Ripasso to the consumers more for the young fresh wines which still offer aromas and tastes thanks to the wine making traditions of Verona.
All this, together with passion and care for detail and continuous investing and collaboration with experts on an international level, allows us to guarantee the production of excellent wines.
