Winemaker's Notes:

The Soave's extended exposure to the skins give the wine an intense yellow color and scents of ripe apples. On the palate it gives off flavors of ripe citrus fruit and golden apples along with a classic almond finish.

About Corte Sant'Alda:

Since 1986 the dynamic Marinella Camerani has been revitalizing her family estate, located in the foothills of the Lessini Mountains, north east of Verona, with dedication and passion. She has tirelessly worked along with her family, rediscovering abandoned techniques, to produce wines that are authentic to and reflective of the territory of Mezzane. Recently Marinella Camerani replanted some of her vineyards in Albarello to further improve the quality of the wines. She has been a part of the National Organic Program (NOP) for over 10 years, and been practicing biodynamics since 2002, working with the Demeter society for certification. To that end, she purchased twin, rare breed Alpine cows to habitate the estate. In recognition of her work, Gambero Rosso has just announced that is will honor Marinella with the Grower of the Year award.
