Q&A with Cesari of Brigaldara, One of Valpolicella’s and Amarone’s Leading Lights

Brigaldara is one of the best wineries of the Valpolicella area. Owned by the Cesari family since 1929, the estate makes some of the purest, more graceful examples of Valpolicella and Amarone (especially) around, providing a welcome alternative to many of the area’s wines that boast much riper mouthfeels, thicker textures, and higher alcohol levels but that when made by lesser lights can be over the top.
