Valpolicella wines and region map

Valpolicella is the main wine of our region. We are very lucky to live here, nearby vineyards of Molinara, Corvina and Rondinella. These are the grapes that blended togheter make not only Valpolicella but also other important wines as Amarone, Recioto and Bardolino.
The last 50 years were very important for our wines. Good entrepreneurs, quality and many varieties of wines together with a good marketing are the recipe of this success. In fact, Valpolicella today is known in many countries in the world.
There are many kinds of wines produced in the Valpolicella region. The most important is Amarone, the others are Valpolicella classico, Valpolicella Superiore and Recioto, a sweet wine.
Below you can see the map of Valpolicella. It is extended from North-West to the Eastern part of Verona. The “Valpolicella Classico” denomination is only in the North-West part as indicated in the map.

I have finally found a single wine that I truly enjoy (sorry France and California): Mio Valpolicella 2006. I have not found another Valpolicella or Amarone that I like (they are good but just not as good) and my local store is out of the 2006 Mio. Where is the Mio winery on this map?

Dear huntingForMio,
MIO is a label produced by ALLEGRINI, one of the top wineries in Vapolicella. If you have the possibility, try also their other wines! Have a look on their website: http://www.allegrini.it (you will not find MIO on their website, it’s probably a private label). This is their location on the map: http://maps.google.it/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=it&geocode=&q=allegrini&sll=45.506347,10.967789&sspn=0.262747,0.574722&ie=UTF8&ll=45.530403,11.009674&spn=0.25109,0.574722&z=11&iwloc=A
Enjoy and keep discovering the wines of our region!
