More about today’s winery:
Monteci is the antique nickname, going back more than a century ago, which was given back then to the Righetti family in the Valpolicella region, and which is highly used today to represent the profound bond with its roots. For generations, Righetti family has owned and managed an important agricultural patrimony which takes in about 200 hectares only of vines, situated in the best areas of the Veneto region. Of these 200, 70 hectares are situated in the historic area of the Classic Valpolicella to produce the most renowned wines such as Amarone and Ripasso, and 45 hectares in the Lugana area cultivating the perfect grape for same name white wine which has recently had a lot of success on international markets.
