About the producer

The Monte Zovo range is produced from across 140 hectares of family-owned vineyards to express the principal denominations of the Verona area – Valpolicella, Garda and Lugana – with their origins in the Valpolicella Classico area near Fumane. Diego Cottini is the principal winemaker, backed in Valpolicella by renowned consultant Riccardo Cotarella. They now own 50 hectares on the Tregnano hillside, home to some fine Amarone-producing vineyards (including the prized 12- hectare Zovolo plot) with the best orientation and suitable elevation. Diego is convinced of the importance of altitude for the production of high quality grapes; all the vineyards are between 450 – 600 metres above sea level.
