The Harmony of our hills
The Excellence of the vine
Ever since the days of Marquis Maffei and his family, this splendid 12-hectare estate, with its whitish calcareous soil and clayey substrate, has revealed its creative temperament as a fertile land in a wonderful position for producing elegant wines of fine quality. Here the vines, which are best exposed to the sun, are cultivated with a low-yield policy.
Our vineyard is between 300 and 450 meters above sea level, in a unique microclimate that affects the ripening of the grapes and the richness of their aromatic properties. High elevation, hillside vineyard together with their perfect exposure to the sun and the wide fluctuation in day to night temperatures, make for wines of excellent structure, harmonious balance and great aging potential.
An ancient estate, once home to Marquis Maffei, has given its name to our wines with a rigorous and aristocratic personality.
For four generations the Cottini family has been cultivating a tradition that dates far back in time. Diego Cottini, together with his wife Annalberta, continues the work started by his father and grandfather, who founded the company in 1925.

Palazzo Maffei is a collection of wines entirely dedicated to the terroir where it borns, the Valpolicella Doc. This region is fully represented by two different selections of Amarone and Ripasso Superiore, as well as by a Valpolicella. But there is no shortage of other denominations’ influence, such as Lugana, Soave and Corvina
