High altitude is a way to compensate low latitude. Salta, if looked at more closely, is actually a tropical province crossed by the Tropic of Capricorn. It is well-known that wines are typically not produced in the tropics, due to the constantly high temperatures found in such regions. However, as we go up in elevation, temperature decreases by 1º C every 180 meters. And as valleys are generally located at 2,000 meters height, it is easy to see that the low latitude is compensated by a higher altitude. But that's not all.
Located in Valgatara, in the heart of Valpolicella Classico, the Luigi Righetti estate is small to mid-sized, family run winery. Since 1909, when Angelo Righetti first earned a reputation as an outstanding winemaker, the family has focussed on producing quality wines offering extremely good value. Righetti's wines exhibit an exceptional balance between fruit, wood aging, acidity and alcohol. The result is a line of wines that have good aging potential, but are available for early consumption as well. The most exciting tradition to evolve from the Veneto region is the process used to dry grapes prior to pressing. Amarone and "Campolieti", the ripasso Valpolicella, have traditionally been the products to benefit from this process.
