Established in 2008, Collis Riondo (the parent company of Castelforte) is one of the largest and most important wine producers in Veneto. They are the undisputed leader of viticulture in the Veneto region with over 6,000 hectares of vineyards that are managed daily by more than 2.400 associated farmers. The vineyards cover the main production zones, appellations and grape varieties of the region: Prosecco, Soave, Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarone, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Garganega and Corvina being the most renowned among local and international consumers. The name “Castelforte” is a fusion of the Italian words for castle and fort in honour of the castle and fortified walled town of Soave.
The vineyards are meticulously taken care of every day by several farmers. The winery has some of the most up to date equipment available which helps ensure the quality of the wine.
Castelforte Valpolicella Superiore is an elegant wine with an excellent body that shows intense scents of blueberry and cherry, liquorice and pleasant balsamic notes of eucalyptus. Its soft, velvety tannins are a perfect match for pasta with rich sauces, grilled red meats and mature cheeses.
