Pojega has a freshness and drinkability that combines with extra depth and complexity given by the addition of 10% of Amarone. Aromatic and full of ripe dark fruit, it has concentration and intensity.

Ripasso  is a strictly controlled, traditional and unique wine-making method crafted only from grapes grown in Valpolicella. The name Ripasso comes from the re-fermentation of Valpolicella wine over the pressed skins our Amarone wines (“Ripasso” is to re-pass). After this secondary fermentation, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for around 12 months.

The company’s goal is unchanged, namely the creation of ‘estate produced and bottled’ wines, retaining control of the entire production chain in-house. New vineyards have been planted with different grape varieties in accordance with the type of soil, and the system of nurturing different varieties of vine is being improved to increase the quality of the wines. In recent years Guerrieri-Rizzardi has joined the ‘Historical Wine Families’ Association and the ‘Les Hénokiens’ Association of 200-year old family businesses. Today, Guerrieri-Rizzardi is a dynamic company, not only in the world of wine, but also in tourism and hospitality, originally started by Antonio Rizzardi, subsequently in Bardolino with Rambaldi apartments and Borgo Bardolino, and in Negrar with the Pojega Garden and Villa Rizzardi.
