Luca Fedrigo

Luca Fedrigo learned how to make wine in Valpolicella from Giuseppe Quintarelli, the master of Valpolicella. You could call Giuseppe an eccentric traditionalist. He makes the most expensive wines in Verona. Luca became his apprentice and worked side by side with him for over ten years. Once after a long day, Giuseppe told Luca to stay in the cellar late into the night to “listen to the wine .”Zen winemaking?

            In 1998 Luca started his own winery next door with some of the best vineyards in the Negrar zone. Today we are offering an exceptional wine as an introduction to his style. The 2018 L’Arco Vini Rosso del Veronese is made with traditional Valpolicella vines with some Sangiovese as well. The wine is deep, round, and balanced, one that invites you to enjoy the moment.

            Luca named the winery after the Arco di Giove, the Jupiter Arch, which has stood on the property since the 16th century. It is visible from the Fedrigo farmhouse. Luca says it is his wish to express this history in his wines.

            By the way, Luca fell in love with and married Giuseppe’s granddaughter, a Romeo and Juliet for now, with a much happier ending.
