Introducing the exceptional Brolo delle Giare Riserva Amarone della Valpolicella Valpantena 2013 by Tezza. This exquisite wine is crafted from 80% Corvina, 15% Rondinella, and 5% Oseleta grapes sourced from the Valpantena region (Verona). The vineyards are situated on limestone-rich soils abundant in organic matter and high in potassium, calcium, and magnesium. The grapes are cultivated using the Guyot and Pergola Inclinata Veronese methods. Harvest takes place in September, with only the finest grapes carefully selected. The grapes are then destemmed, pressed, and fermented with selected yeasts at a temperature of 20°C in stainless steel tanks. The drying process occurs in special rooms with low temperatures and controlled humidity. The wine then matures for 72 months in the winery’s cellars.
The Brolo delle Giare Amarone boasts a dark garnet red color and a bouquet of black cherries in alcohol, graphite, and chocolate. The wine is characterized by its excellent freshness, firm and velvety tannins. Serve this wine at 17°C alongside roasted and grilled red meats, cured meats, and aged cheeses.

Since 1998, the cousins Flavio, Vanio, and Federico have been running Tezza’s vineyards. The Tezza family has been producing wines for three generations and is immersed in the wine traditions of the Valpantena and Valpolicella regions.
Founded in 1960, the Tezza winery is an example of a short production chain that guarantees authenticity, transparency, and excellence. Every step of the winemaking process is traceable, from planting the vines in the family vineyards to bottling the wine. The wines are exported worldwide and express the dedication, care, and energy that the three cousins have shown as winemakers since 1998.
Tezza’s vineyards cover 28 hectares in Valpantena, in the hamlets of Poiano, Nesente, and Sezano. They are grown according to the strictest EU organic standards, without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or conventional pesticides. Tezza can thus produce organic, balanced, and elegant wines.
Corvina, Rondinella, and Oseleta are the native grape varieties that thrive on the limestone and gravelly soils of Valpantena. The grapes have their roots in the history of the area and give wines with a perfect balance between alcohol and acidity, and sweet and soft tannins.
Drying the grapes is a fundamental step in the production of Amarone and Recioto. Drying takes place in the drying rooms under optimal humidity and temperature conditions. Tezza’s cellar is equipped with a new drying room with controlled temperature and humidity.
Aging in barrels is essential for the development of the wine. The wines age in French and Slavonian oak barrels of 750 liters and French oak barriques of 225 liters. Next to the barriques is the historic Tezza cellar, where only the best bottles and vintages are stored.
The fermentation of Tezza wines takes place in large stainless steel tanks with modern systems that use automatic temperature control. The steel is flanked in the inner part of the cellar by historic concrete tanks, which guarantee a constant temperature throughout the year.
