Guerrieri Rizzardi was formed from the union of two noble families of Verona: Guerrieri of Bardolino and Rizzardi of Negrar. The Guerrieri Rizzardi family today owns a total of four different wine estates.
Giuseppe Rizzardi took charge of winemaking in 1998, after graduating from the University of Bordeaux, and has presided over a quality transformation that earned the winery its first “3 Bicchieri” with the 2001 Villa Rizzardi Amarone DOC Classico.
Three additional “3 Bicchieri” awards, for Villa Rizzardi Amarone DOC Classico 2004, Calcarole Amarone DOC Classico 2003, and Pojega DOC Classico Superiore 2007, confirm that Giuseppe Rizzardi has mastered the art of producing high-quality wines.
“Our wines are a true expression of our lands, our heritage, and our people.” Countess Rizzardi
Guerrieri Rizzardi produces estate-bottled fine wines from its historical vineyards. Its approach has been fashioned by a long-standing relationship with the land, heritage, and tradition, yet innovation is welcomed in the quest for perfection.

|Best Red Wine of the Year – Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Calcarole ’09 Guerrieri Rizzardi
“A red for only the best vintages is the wine that best represents its territory, full-bodied, with hints of cherry and berries, aged in wood and with a very long life that can be up to 30 years. And above all is the wine that the Wine Guide Italy has named the best red 2014: we speak of the Amarone della Valpolicella 2009 Calcarole Cellar Warriors Rizzardi Bardolino.” Gambero Rosso
