Guerrieri Rizzardi is an historic family owned estate established in 1914 but with vineyard holdings dating back to the XV century inherited from the Counts Guerrieri and XVII century from the Counts Rizzardi.

To this day the estates are family owned and run Contessa Maria Cristina Loredan is the winery president and her two sons Giuseppe Rizzardi and Agostino Rizzardi have been operatively running the company since the late ‘90s: Giuseppe is in charge of the estates management and is the winemaker, while Agostino is the general manager.

They have presided over a quality based evolution from an already strong base and this focus was rewarded by a first 3 Bicchieri for the 2001 Villa Rizzardi Amarone DOC Classico. http://www.guerrieri-rizzardi.com/

Further 3 Bicchieri awards followed every year culminating in the grand prize in 2014 of Gambero Rosso “Red Wine of The Year” for the flagship Guerrieri Rizzardi Calcarole Amarone Classico 2009.

Single vineyard Guerrieri Rizzardi Calcarole Amarone Classico is only produced in the best vintages and in limited quantities.

Calcarole is a “cru” above the Villa di Rovereti in the heart of Negrar in the Valpolicella Classico Area.

This vineyard is ideally suited due to its particularly warm climate and stony soil and it south west aspect. Sourced from mature vines, the grapes are harvested by hand and picked when they are at the ideal ripeness to undergo drying.

The hand selected grapes are naturally dried in boxes and then fermented and pressed. Calcarole Amarone can be cellared for many years.

“At Guerrieri Rizzardi, we produce estate grown fine wines from our historical estates. The relationship between our land, heritage and tradition has, for many years, moulded our philosophy, yet we never loose sight of innovation in our quest to produce a better bottle of wine”.

Peter Lehmann Mentor Cabernet 2014

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence. After a short burst of heat in late January and early February, it was warm and stable for the remainder of the vintage producing richly flavoured red wines of exceptional quality. Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to duck, goose and game dishes. It is superb with oxtail, braised lamb shanks and wonderful with a fine aged cheddar.
