WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
A truly particular wine, produced from grapes that grow on clayey soil and spurred cordon-trained vines. One day in contact with the skins, six months in steel barrels, three months in the bottle. Bubble produced with the ancestral method, which involves refermentation in the bottle with the must of the same harvest; the wine then rests on the lees until it is marketed.

We are between Cremona and Mantua, in Spineda, in the fertile Po Valley. Compared to the province of Cremona, it is the only winery in the area. On the other hand, viticulture is more widespread in the Mantua area.
The discovery of vitis vinifera seeds near Lake Garda, dating back to the Bronze Age (2,000 years before Roman civilization) bears witness to the deep roots of Lombard culture.
Thanks to the evolution, the transformation and the overcoming of various phases that have marked the growth and also the recession, it is now certain that the wine-growing path of Lombardy has led to the placement of the cultivation of the vine in the highly suitable areas of the region.
Two areas are clearly distinct from a geographical point of view, in Lombardy. To the north is the mountainous area, which culminates with the Rhaetian Alps. To the south, on the other hand, is the flat area, which occupies the vast majority of the regional territory and where the Caleffi winery is located.
The territory suited to viticulture in the province of Mantua is extremely varied, with two distinct wine-growing areas, the hilly one and the Mantuan Oltrepò. The hilly area, renowned both for still wines and for sparkling and passito wines, sees the use of vines such as Chardonnay, Cabernet, Merlot and Pinot Grigio, in the Garda DOC and Garda Colli Mantovani DOC denominations. The other important denomination of the province of Mantua is Lambrusco Mantovano DOC, characterized by two distinct production sub-areas, Lambrusco Viadanese, with more full-bodied and full-bodied wines, and Lambrusco dell'Oltrepò Mantovano, which instead denotes greater lightness and fragrance.
It is the only winery in the province of Cremona.
Caleffi is in fact located in Spineda, and on the border between the Provinces of Cremona and that of Mantua, and is managed by the brothers Davide and Emanuele who cultivate the historic family vineyard, passed down from father to son over the years. The winery is committed to making quality wine, respecting the vine and the natural times of winemaking, recovering the ancestral production method of refermentation in the bottle.
The area in which their vineyard is located, of marshy origin, is located between the Po and Oglio rivers, is called "Regone": the will and determination of peasants has snatched it from the brambles and thorns - hence the name Spineda – transforming it into land suitable for the cultivation of vines, characterized by a prevalence of clay.
The approach is completely natural, in the vineyard and in the cellar, for products of the highest quality. The production is accurate and very limited, produced from two and a half hectares of vineyards. Among the rows the work is based on the preservation of the ecosystem, limiting the intervention to targeted actions of pruning until the harvest. And so it is then in the cellar, where the brothers have earned a respectable role in the Lombard production and beyond.
