Cantina Nepos Villae - Classic Valpolicella - Wine Carved in The Stone
A territory steeped in history and humanity, marked by small stone villages and silent districts, ancient fountains and marble wash-houses. Dorsals crossed by long dry stone walls, the marogna, carved between marl and rock, in support of vineyards, olive trees and cherry trees. Ancient Romanesque churches raise the bell towers beyond the gaze. They mark the territory and merge with towers and ruins of medieval castles. Capitals marked by ancestral frescoes, remain a sentinel of the human soul. Valpolicella tells the silences and throb of a never tame humanity.
