The Speri’s presence in this heartland of fine winemaking goes back to 1874, though the original homestead and cellars are even older, built in 1580.
The Speri family has always put the vineyard first, and through the years, purchased over 148 acres in the finest Classico districts: Fumane, Negrar, and San Pietro in Cariano.
In spite of size and scope, the Speris personally deal with every detail: every grape going into their wines is estate-owned and estate-grown, personally cultivated by the Speris with just as much pride in the craft of viniculture, the manual, hard-working side to it, as in its art.
The Speri family is a shining example of the values and strengths of a timeless culture, rooted in the family and the soil. The fourth generation invested heavily in clonal selection, state-of-the-art equipment, and ever-higher quality criteria. These were watershed years, when the brothers decided to vinify each vineyard individually for all wines and not just Amarone.
Carlo Speri will tell you that the vineyard has always been foremost in the Speri philosophy, “the local heritage in terms of terroir is so exceptional, we have always and exclusively grown native Valpolicella clones. We believe that these alone constitute the appellation’s most authentic expression. Our ultimate objective – a pretty ambitious one! – is that of achieving perfect harmony of the soil and its vines.”
