Paolo Cottini - Valpolicella (Italy)
La differenza tra fare un lavaro and farlo per passione è il risultato! The difference between working and doing this with passion is the final result! Paolo Cottini has his own work ethic to obtain a personal identity for his wines. Together with his wife Sarah, he continues a passion under his own name that has actually been inspiring for 3 generations. The vines are planted in the heart of Valpolicella, more specifically Castelrotto and include 2 different wine regions, both geologically and climatically. One in Ca´ del Gallo at 580 m altitude, southwest facing and the other in Valgatara at 250 m altitude and southeast facing. They lie in the middle of the big names and enable them to give the respective wines as much balance and complexity as possible guaranteeing a unique identity. This small family domain surprised many wine critics in no time and worked its way up to an unmissable wine experience in a nevertheless unique region in terms of grapes, wines and their respective production methods.
