ILatium Morini, Italy

The seven brothers and cousins involved with ILatium Morini changed their approach in 2004 and decided to keep the best grapes to make wine themselves.

Since 2004 the torrent of accolades, including an IWC Gold for their Amarone and glowing reviews from Jancis Robinson, would suggest that they made the right decision. Now at the forefront of the new wave production of Soave, Valpolicella and Amarone, the wines combine beautiful fruit concentration with fresh, bright acidity.

Viticulture

Today the winery cultivates 40 hectares with plots spread across Valpolicella and Soave. Healthy fruit at peak ripeness is hand harvested and air dried for 100 to 120 days in small baskets.

Winemaking

The appassimento technique of air drying grapes is used- not only in the production of Amarone and Valpolicella Superiore but also in the single vineyard Soave Campo Le Calle and adds an intriguing level of complexity to the wines.
