Origin: From “crea”, a clayey loam of volcanic originis, the fruit of the legendary CONCA D’ORO - the“Golden Shell”- the prestigious hilly zone of historic Valpolicella Classica. After meticulous analyses of the soil in this prized Tommasi estate, we planted clones of the traditional Corvina Veronese, Oseleta (a restored native vine), and the modern Cabernet Franc. With loving vinification of these select grapes was born CREARO, a "SuperVenetian” wine epitomizing the perfect marriage of tradition and innovation.
