Additional Information:  At the end of the 19th century, Paolo Vaona began producing and selling bottled Valpolicella and Recioto wines. In the 1950s, the winery was handed over to his son Bruno, who died prematurely, leaving his two sons, Giampaolo and Cesare, orphaned and as a consequence had to devote themselves solely to grape production. 

Giampaolo studied oenology and in 1973, with his brother Cesare, they decided to reopen the winery and chose the name Novaia or ‘new farmyard’ .In 2005, the fourth generation arrived in the company: Marcello (son of Giampaolo) and Cristina (daughter of Cesare). With them, the company moved towards the conversion to organic production, which began in 2011 and was completed with the 2014 harvest. The Vaona family continue to have their headquarters in the 15th Century Palace in the hills of Marano, Valpolicella Classico. 

Made with 50 % Corvina, 30 % Rondinella and 20% Corvinone from the Novaia vineyards, located at 250-300 meters above sea level. Picked during the last ten days of September.  Natural drying process in a traditional hilly fruttaio (drying room at 400m above sea level) for about 100 days. The wine ages for 24 months in barrique and 12 months in bottle.
