Il Monte Caro

The Il Monte Caro winery started as an idea Enzo Marcolini had in 1986 when he and

his wife Carla came across land on one of the slopes of Mount Caro in Mezzane di

Sotto, fell in love and decided to stay embarking on a new agricultural adventure.


Once on the hill, often called by local people “stony land” due to strong presence of

limestone rocks, they planted olive trees and grapevines then they built an artesian

well and our rural home, thus creating the foundations of the family farm.
Today the two sons join the initial dream.

Our collaboration, passion and the desire to pursuit a healthy and genuine lifestyle

drive us to always create wines that respect and tell the story of our land. 

The grape varieties that we grow are those typical of our Valpolicella region: Corvina,

Corvinone, and Rondinella; furthermore we have some of Cabernet Sauvignon and


We look after the vineyard’s care and this is done according to natural beliefs.

We vinificate exclusively our grapes and in utmost respect of what nature gives us.

The  winery encompasses land that rises from 150 to 300 meters above

sea level. We always experience an exceptionally dry and breezy microclimate due to

the continuous air coming from the north, along with warmer soil temperatures

compared to the one of surrounding hills. Our 7 hectares property is composed of  

highly calcareous and stony soil with great variety of flints and limited basaltic rocks. 

The majority of our vines are planted in Pergoletta Veronese and Trentina methods,

whereas the Guyot system is used on the terraces located on the steepest slope of

our vineyard.
We take care of our vines in all their phases: from delicate winter pruning

to the summer works focused on controlling the microclimate that embraces

our vineyard. Only the best bunches are manually selected during harvest to then

obtain genuine wines, with personality and that tell the story of our hill and family.

We cultivate our land focusing on fertilisation of the soil and taking care

of biodiversity.  Along with our vines we are surrounded by fruits trees,

about 500 olive trees and woods.
