Our Cypress tree
At our vineyard in Fumane, we have one of the tallest and healthiest cypress trees in Italy. It is about 250 years old, 4.1 meters wide, with a height of 30 meters. Historically, it was right next to another cypress tree, which was cut during the second World War by some soldiers. The owner of the villa next to the tree came out and offered them a barrel of Recioto so they won't cut the beloved tree and they accept the offer.
In Valpolicella all the histories are connected to wine.
