    Winemaker Notes

    The color is a brilliant straw yellow with a fresh fruit perfumes, especially apple and pear, and floral notes such as elder and bloom. The taste is very fresh and light, with a very interesting acidity. There is an important presence of mineral salts due to the volcanic origin of the soil.

    Gambellara, Soave, Veneto, Italy
    At the end of the first millennium under the direction of the Benedectine monks, the grape growing in Gambellara had a great impulse, abandoning the old techniques learnt from the Roman Empire times. During the centuries the art of winemaking improved quickly, reaching the present high quality now appreciated all over the world. In 1882 the expert Domenico Lampertico in its "Studies and news on the agrarian economy of Vicenza, Lonigo and Barbarano districts" writes about Gambellara: "we have to do a special mention to the grape growing in Gambellara, where since the high quality standards are famous all over the world.

    In 1947, pushed from the will to improve the quality of their wines, 26 wine growers living in Gambellara founded the Cantina di Gambellara. The first harvest gave a few thousand hectolitres of wine; because of the good results there was a fast increase of the vineyard growing from 40 hectares to current 650 in only a few years, owned by 365 vine growers.

    Garganega

    Flourishing in the rolling vineyards surrounding the medieval village of Soave in the Veneto region, Garganega is one of Italy’s classic white varieties. It makes up 70 to 100% of any Soave (white wine) by law, with the remainder finished off traditionally by Trebbiano di Soave for its crispness. More recently international varieties like Chardonnay are being used to create softer and fruitier Soave.

    The best Soave wines come from the Soave Classico zone, where the hills are made of decomposed granite soils and have the capacity to produce elegant and vibrant wines. The remainder of the zone tends to give rounder and fuller versions of Garganega.

    Garganega’s best white wines are steely and delicate with yellow peach, melon, almond, Herbs de Provence and lime zest flavors and aromas. Its simpler versions can offer great values and make wonderful quaffers. If you like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris, try Graganega for something a little different.
