Monte dei Ragni is a tiny jewel of an estate perched at between 250 – 350 metres above sea level on the vertiginous slopes above the village Fumane at the heart of the Valpolicella Classico zone.
Only 2 hectares! of the total 8 available are planted with a view to making wine; part pergola, part guyot. Production is circa 5000 bts of the Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso and 1500 bts of the Amarone Classico. The remaining 6ha of fruit is currently sold off.
Zeno Zignoli married into the Ragno family and then spent 8 years preparing the ground, with the aide of a horse, before releasing his first wine with vintage 2003. Vinification is entirely in oak, predominantly used tonneau.
