Bailo is a Venetian word used to represent the ambassadors of the Republic of Venice in the world. It is then the maximum representation of the Venetian character and history.
Bailo is also the surname of Marisa, Alessandro De Stefani’s mother, and this wine is made in her honor. Indeed she desired to complete the picture of the excellence of Veneto wines, together with De Stefani wines.
Alessandro started a cooperation with an old school mate from Valpolicella, Verona, the land of Amarone and Ripasso. They studied together at the oenological school of Conegliano in Veneto, the oldest and most famous wine school of Italy.
The Bailo wines, Amarone and Ripasso, are the result of this cooperation and are produced in a marvellous hillside estate. The vineyard has a perfect exposure, the soil is calcareous, the vines are old and with high density and they are farmed organically.
The Amarone and Ripasso are both produced from a blend in different percentages of four native varieties: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Croatina.
