The Lavarini agricultural company looks back on a long tradition, the result of three generations of winemakers, who have been producing wine since they started in the 1970s. Today Massimo Lavarini, continues the family business with passion and enthusiasm.
The company, which extends to about 7 hectares, is located with pride and awareness within the history and centuries-old tradition of Valpolicella. In recent years the Company has carried out a major restructuring action, both from a structural and technological point of view, in order to optimize and increase the quality of the wines produced. The company's philosophy is derived from the firm conviction that a wine’s quality is a direct result of the quality of each stage of the production process, in a combination of tradition and innovation. For this reason Massimo personally follows every detail of production, from grape growing to winemaking, aging to bottling, with attention to every single choice, listening carefully to the times, favouring the rhythms of nature, according to the experience and knowledge that he learned from his father and grandfather, married to a careful study of the technical production innovations. This attention to detail brought, for example, the use of a new generation fruit-drying room with a ventilation and humidity control system for the environment in which, however, only traditional wooden crates are used for the drying of the grapes: it is certainly a more laborious and demanding choice, but it guarantees a natural and slow process of drying the grapes for the production of Amarone and Recioto. The company produces typical wines of Valpolicella, DOC and DOCG: Valpolicella Classico Superiore, Ripasso Valpolicella, Amarone and Recioto. The wines produced are destined both for the Italian market and the export market for Europe and elsewhere.
