Winemaker's Notes

Made with the "tear drop" method which uses the pick of the crop and applies stationary draining before fermentation, thereby obtaining what is regarded as the heart of the grape. Half of the must ferments and develops in little oak casks of a capacity of 228 litres for around 6 months.

Critical Acclaim

"If you’re looking for a quaffer, this isn’t it. Mattia Vezzola blends this pale orange wine from gropello, marzemino, sangiovese and barbera grown on the western shore of Lake Garda. It’s left for only hours on the skins and pressed at night before half the blend goes into small barrels for six months; the other half goes into stainless steel tanks. Right now, the 2012 is seriously oaky, but the wood quickly fades from consciousness. It has the fruitiness of fresh mushrooms, gentle and savory, and an earthiness that ranges from forest floor to saline minerality. Though delicate in flavor, it has real presence on the palate, the wine wanting a charcuterie spread of fennel salami and mortadella."
