About the wine
The name Capitel de’ Roari refers to the various plots of vineyards where grapes are obtained for the Amarone della Valpolicella Classico. The vineyards, situated on the finest hills of the Valpolicella Classica, are well cultivated, limited in production and high in quality.
Gianmaria and Giuseppe are the fourth generation of the Righetti family to carry on the family winemaking tradition. Gianmaria and Giuseppe’s father, Luigi, who is still active in the estate’s day-to-day operations, was the first in the family to consider production for consumers beyond the local market. Gian Maria has gone a step further by crafting wines with a more international flair.
In addition to the traditional varietals of the region, the estate cultivates international varietals to create Venetian wines with a worldly twist. With over a century of winemaking history, Luigi Righetti is a classic example of a winery that has preserved its own rich viticultural tradition, while creating innovative wines that are celebrated on the world stage.
