Stories of stone and color. This is the Negrar valley, this is our Villa vineyard. The pink of Prun stone, the white of Mazzano marl, the yellow of Torbe sandstone.

Ancient lands, shaped by the power of nature. Between crumbling folds and interlocking veins lies the essence of our existence. Ancient lands, shaped by the power of nature.

Amorphous crystals that rise from the depths to become nutrition for man. From the womb of this primordial earth are the roots of the vine to drink the infinite spring of life.

Cultivated with the ancient system of the double Veronese pergola, the family vineyard is located just behind the villa, beyond the small garden. A composition of greenery that stretches out suspended between the stone rubble and the terracing.

Corvina gentile, Corvina grossa, Rondinella and Molinara are our grapes. Resting on a marly, white soil, typical of the Negrar Valley. Rugged rocks, fossil fusions between limestone and marine sandstones.

Nepos Villae vineyard Valpolicella

The Negrar Valley, the territory in which our vines cling. The coldest valley of Valpolicella: even in summer, at the end of the day, our estate is immersed in a pleasant coolness.

This breeze that comes down punctually from the mountain, you can find it in the ripening of the grapes, in the aromas and in the quality of our wines.

Campo di Villa

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico d.o.c.g.

The beating heart of our tradition, Amarone “Campo di Villa” is our distinctive cru originating from the majestic vineyard located among the marls of the ancient contrada of Villa. This ancient vineyard dominates the Negrar Valley, serving as a treasure chest of values and affections that represent the excellence of our family history. Here the historical resurgent ideal of founder Giovan Battista Quintarelli is fused with the young innovative passion of his great-grandson Francesco, embodying a contemporaneity that harmoniously blends with the history and tradition of these centuries-old walls. “Campo di Villa” is a testament to historic Valpolicella that transcends its borders.
