The first secure evidence of the history of this wine production dates back to the years 200 - 300 BC. During the early 19th Century, they began to manufacture the classic wines Valpolicella Superiore (today also Classico) and dessert wine Recioto. In 1936 the same manufacturers also started to produce Amarone. It was the winemaker Villa Mosconi - today known as Bertani - that produced this wine based on three local grape varieties: Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, which is still used today in the manufacture of this amazing wine.
