(NEGRAR – VERONA) Quality and hard work, this has always moved the Viviani family, which produces top quality red wines such as Amarone Classico, Valpolicella Classico Superiore Campo Morar and Amarone Casa dei Bepi.
Viviani’s History and Philosophy
Despite its relatively small size, just 10 hectares in a denomination where there are many considerably larger houses, Viviani has obtained a place of honor among the best known and most respected producers of Valpolicella. This is at least in part because of the respect for tradition that has never wavered. While colleagues from the area experimented with Cabernet, Merlot and even planting Chardonnay and Sauvignon in an area where whites were left to the neighboring areas of Soave in the east, Custoza and Lugana in the west, the Viviani family never hesitated in his dedication to the classic varieties of the area, especially in Corvina.
Respect for tradition, however, has never meant immobility, and Claudio Viviani, who is responsible for the production and style of wines, has never considered data and established the methods of processing in the cellar forever. The house uses both large barrels and small oak barrels with confidence, varying them according to the weight, concentration and structure of the individual wine, sometimes, for example, with Amarone Classico and Valpolicella Classico Superiore Campo Morar, even together. The richest and most powerful expression of this red grape, the Amarone Casa dei Bepi is obviously aged only in barrels.
The wines of Viviani
Everything clearly started in the vineyard, and Viviani has highly favorable places in the denomination; Negrar, the town is right in the center of the valley, equidistant from both Fumane and the non-classic area to the east. The vineyards are located high above the valley level at 350-500 meters above sea level, and both the cooler temperatures of the evening and the night and the breeze of the place are significant factors for the quality regularly obtained. The abandonment of cultivation through pergola systems, more suitable for the production of large quantities of grapes, in favor of the Guyot system, used in a large number of the best appellations in the world, is also a sign of the seriousness and commitment that the family has always given for its first choice products.
