Serègo Alighieri | Veneto

The grape drying loft at Serègo Alighieri

This estate was bought in 1353 by the son of Dante “Divine Comedy” Alighieri, and is still owned by his descendants; Masi lend their winemaking expertise. Cool vineyards near Lake Garda give wonderful richness and clarity to the flavours, and an extra twist comes from the use of traditional cherry wood barrels for the reds (except the Recioto), imparting a unique spicy quality. The Valpolicella dell’Anniversario was released to celebrate the 650th anniversary of the estate; selected from the best hillside vineyards and given added depth and complexity through double fermentation, it is a masterful wine.
