Environmentally sensitive viticulture

by Enzo Corazzina – A restructuring plan for vineyards has affected more than 65% of Mr. Armani’s holding in the last twelve years. It provides the substitution of the old traditional “Trentina double pergola” growing system for more modern and functional espaliers; the purchase of innovative sprayers, able to distribute plant protection products on vine leaves only in localized zones, in order to reduce their drift into the atmosphere; the adoption of a sort of integrated control: even though pesticides are widely used, they are choosen

Dream on, boy, at Camporal

Camporal is an ancient and untouched place, capable of transmitting strong emotions. It’s like magic. It is located in the high hills of Valpolicella Classica, north-east of Verona with slopes, facing south-west. Your eye embraces the plain stretching southward underneath, through the tiny vineyards held up by the “marogne” (old stone terracing), in perfect balance with the woods, and century – old olive and cherry trees. Camporal (campo reale) means “Royal Vineyard”: the most beautiful vineyard in the valley. From

About Us

About Us

Four hundred years amongst vineyards and an infinite passion for wine. The history of the Armani family and that of viticulture in the Adige Valley, between the provinces of Trento and Verona, have been evolving together, without interruption, for more than 4 centuries. Today  “Albino Armani Viticoltori dal 1607” means territory, or rather territories. The historical property in Dolcè, in the Adige Valley in the province of Verona, is one of 3 wineries located in the region Veneto: one other is to be found in Marano, in the Valpolicella Classico area, and one  in the province of Treviso, in San Polo di Piave, where our biodynamic wines are produced. Two more wineries are located in the regions Trentino and Friuli. All five wineries watch over their territories, vinifying the grapes of the surrounding vineyards. In each of them the common thread is a terroir reflecting its specific particular character in the wines springing from its soil. The headquarters remain in Dolcè, where the “Conservatoria”, a project for safeguarding local grape varieties in danger of extinction, can be visited.
