Terre di Pietra

Terre di Pietra is a small winery nestled in the heart of the hilly Valpolicella region east of Verona. Since their establishment in 2007 they have strived to express their eponymous stony soils through the classic Valpolicella varieties in as natural a way as possible.

quercia laboriosa

Garganega 'Quercia Laboriosa'

A super pure, lean and mineral style of garganega. Crisp notes of orchard fruit underscored by salty, stony minerality.

tempesta

Corvina-Molinara 'Tempesta'

When life gives you lemons... or in this case, hailstones.

Tempesta was created after part of the crop was lost several years in a row. Cristiano saved what he could, and has turned it into a multi-vintage blend of deliciousness. Delicate, fruit-driven and just a little bit savoury, Tempesta proves the old adage about good wineries making good wine, regardless of the vintage.

piccola peste

Rosso Veronese 'Piccola Peste'

Terre di Pietra's 'problem child' is essentially a declassified Valpolicella, and it's everything we think Valpolicella should be: full of bouncy, juicy red berried fruit, smooth tannins, and refreshing acidity. Deliciously uncomplicated.

rosson

Amarone 'Rosson'

Produced only in selected vintages, Rosson represents the pinnacle of the Terre di Pietra estate. The best bunches are harvested and dried for four months, followed by gentle pressing, vinification, and ageing for four years in old oak barrels. Deep, savoury and complex, with an elegance not often associated with amarone!

Terre di Pietra

Terre di Pietra is a small winery nestled in the heart of the hilly Valpolicella region east of Verona. Since their establishment in 2007 they have strived to express their eponymous stony soils through the classic Valpolicella varieties in as natural a way as possible. This means no chemical interventions in the vineyard or cellar, no new-fangled fads like ripasso, and amarone produced only in the best vintages. These stunning wines show what can be achieved with true passion and dedication.
