Capitel della Crosara: the “Capitello” at the intersection in a small village of Valpolicella; a very old stone on which the figure of the Madonna is painted; which in past times was used by the peasantry as a votive icon; the Montresor family, impressed by the Terroir and the charm of this area, established a collaboration with almost all the peasant families of the Borgo in the 1950s to be able to buy their grapes. The relationship between the producers and the Cantine Giacomo Montresor was so deep that it was said that Montresor came to have the Monopoly of these grapes.
