Dal Cero Family Vineyards – Tenuta di Corte Giacobbe/ Soave & Dal Cero in Valpolicella
Dario Dal Cero sets the example of hard work at his namesake winery near Verona. Everyone works in this family, putting in the sweat and the sacrifice that enabled the Dal Cero holdings to grow from a few hectares to a sizeable winery in Soave.
The family owns a piece of the best-situated vineyard of all, Runcata, atop the twin dormant volcanoes that give the higher vineyards of Soave a distinctive minerality to bolster the natural fragrance and ripe-ness of the Garganega grape.
Under the tutelage of consulting winemaker Nicolo d’Afflitto, Dario’s son Davide is learning to derive maximum flavours from the lower and higher slopes.
The family built up its holdings from a modest start, and now is seen as a trailblazer in coaxing superb wines from a region reborn.
