DOC area for red wines in the west of the Italian region of Veneto. The zone includes the municipalities of Cazzano di Tramigna, Cerro Veronese, Colognola ai Colli, Dolcè, Fumane, Grezzana, Illasi, Lavagno, Marano di Valpolicella, Mezzane di Sotto, Montecchia di Crosara, Negrar, Pescantina, San Martino Buon Albergo, San Mauro di Saline, San Pietro in Cariano, Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella, Tregnago and Verona in the province of Verona. The five municipalities of Fumane, Marano di Valpolicella, Negrar, San Pietro in Cariano and Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella form the Valpolicella Classico area with largely terraced sites. The Valpolicella Valpantena subzone comprises a smaller area in the Valpantena valley in a niche of Lake Garda, which is characterised by a special climate. If the grapes come from classified vineyards, the Superiore wines may indicate Vigna followed by the vineyard name. The picture shows a view from the hills of the municipality of Castelrotto (San Pietro in Cariano province of Verona) with vineyards and olive groves of Valpolicella.
