Il Bugiardo means "the liar". This wine gained its name from a critic during a blind tasting. The critic was so impressed that he mistook the wine for an Amarone. He exclaimed that if this wine was a Ripasso, then it was a "lying wine". This wine is made from 100% estate fruit, which comes from Buglioni's vineyards in Valpolicella Classico. The vineyards are located at an altitude of about 495ft and consist of dark, clayey soils with a high content of gravel.

Harvest Note
The 2021 vintage was a good harvest with ideal conditions. Rainfall was even and well timed. The temperatures were not extreme. Warm days and cool nights in August and September allowed for perfect ripening of the grapes.
Tasting Note
Dark ruby red color. Intense and elegant aromas of ripe fruit and spices, with a slight scent of vanilla and tobacco. Persistent and warm taste, velvety and harmonic.
Food Pairing
Fine red meat, chateaubriand and beef fillet, risotto, medium-high aged cheeses. Its slender shape helps cleanse the palate when combined with stews, ragù or with the classic Veronese boiled meats.
