Production and refinement

Blend of Veronese Corvina and Merlot, whose grapes grow in 2 vineyards with great potential from glacial, gravelly, limestone, and alluvial soils (100 meters above sea level).

The Corvina grapes are dried on 4kg trays for 20 days (according to Veronese traditions), while the Merlot grapes are vinified immediately after harvest. Destemming, crushing, maceration, and fermentation take place in steel at a controlled temperature of 28°C, divided for each of the two varieties. During vinification, délestage is performed to favor the extraction of polyphenols. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, further aging in barrels for 24 months, and maturation for 10 months in bottles.

Veneto

Grapevines have been cultivated in Veneto since the 7th century B.C., perfected by the Romans and continued in the Middle Ages. With Venetian domination from 1405, viticulture almost completely covers the territory, and Veronese wines, thanks to the Adige River, reach Venice. What sets this region apart from many others is the continuous commercial success of its wine products. From the late 18th century, the region experienced a crisis. However, the following century saw a qualitative leap in Venetian wines, also driven by the establishment of the Società Enologica Veronese in 1872. The first edition of Vinitaly took place in 1967.

Veneto has a complex wine production chain. Important areas include the Colline del Garda Veronese and Valpolicella, with Bardolino Superiore DOCG and Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG. Worth noting is the interregional Lugana DOC, between the provinces of Verona and Mantua. In the volcanic hills between the provinces of Verona and Vicenza lies the area of Soave Superiore DOCG, Soave DOC, and Gambellara DOC. The Colli Berici DOC, south of Vicenza, is known for its reds based on international varieties and Tocai Rosso. The Breganze DOC area, north of Vicenza, is renowned for its reds and whites based on Vespaiola grapes. In the Paduan area, there are the Colli Euganei with the Moscato Fior d’Arancio DOCG, while to the south lies the Friularo di Bagnoli DOCG. In Treviso, we find the Prosecco DOCG and the Colli di Conegliano DOCG. At the borders with Friuli is the Lison DOCG.

The presence of mountain ranges, hills, and vast plains provides significant temperature variations, mitigated near Lake Garda and along the coast. Veneto is therefore rich in diverse wines, made with both native and international grape varieties that find a second home here.

Veronese shore of Lake Garda

The lower part of Lake Garda, in the province of Verona, is characterized by gentle hills that create a magnificent morainic amphitheater: one of the most significant areas for wine production in Veneto and Italy.

The loose materials carried southward by the two major glaciations that affected Lake Garda (or Benaco) during the Quaternary period now form excellent sediments for grape cultivation. For this reason, white wines like Lugana and Custoza, and reds like Bardolino (which come to life right on the shores of Lake Garda), have unique characteristics such as gentle and fresh aromas with a smooth and elegant palate, much like the bucolic landscape that welcomes these vines.

If Lake Garda is the common matrix, each wine interprets this intimate connection with nature in its own way, forged by the passion of the winemakers who care for them every day. These are gastronomic wines that favor lake cuisine, where fish reigns supreme. Even first courses of pasta with vegetables or white ragout are fascinated by the versatility of these glasses that have Lake Garda as their common matrix.

Here, amidst gentle and fresh aromas, wines like Lugana, Custoza, and Bardolino tell the story of the bucolic landscape that embraces them.
