This family-run domain extends over two sites in the heart of Valpolicella Classico: four hectares in Negrar and six of the highest hectares in the appellation, at 400 metres altitude, in Fumane. The wines are outstanding and the reputation of the Acinatico name is growing all the time. Modernity is balanced by earth and roses, so characteristic of the terroir. Best of all, the wines are accessible when young, so there is no need to wait. In 2010, the vision of a new cellar was realised, in the higher part of Accordini’s vineyards, and has allowed the family to realise their highest ambitions for their wines.
The grapes were crushed and de-stalked before the fermentation process began. The fermentation took place at temperatures between 25°C - 28°C. The wine was macerated for 12 days with hand pressing taking place three times a day. The wine was then kept in stainless steel tanks where complete malolactic fermentation was allowed to occur. The wine was then aged in bottle for 2 months before being released for sale.
Corvina 65%, Rondinella 30%, Molinara 5%.

At the start of the palate there the wine is full flavoured but this is balanced with soft and elagant tannins. Hints of spices integrate with flavours of mature fruits.
