After an old terraced vineyard had been recalimed in 1991, and the soil renewed, with the aid of technological innovations, the hillside slope was densely planted with low vines. “Collina Zinzèle” was thus created with the vines growing on the steepest side of the slope in order to achieve a limited yield of superior grapes from every vine.
Furore Bianco Fiorduva is the magnificent result of the undoubted experience of Marisa Cuomo in the art of winemaking. Three grapes combine to create such a masterpiece, Fenile, Ginestra and Ripoli, hand-picked to preserve the precious organoleptic characteristics...
“Vette di San Leonardo owes its name to the majestic peaks – “vette” in Italian – which frame the vineyards that give it birth. The complex minerality and youthful freshness of these mountains are reﬂ ected in Vette’s sensory proﬁ le”.
During the Renascence many wines were known as “Greco, Grecante, Grechetto”. Montefalco’s Grecante was one of the most appreciated, indeed the head of the Municipality of Montefalco used to sent it as a precious gift to princes and important clergymen. Arnaldo Caprai’s Grecante keeps this long tradition alive.
The name of this unforgettable white wine connects in part to the name Stravino, one of the typical villages of our mountain valley; more importantly, however, is the word play involved – Stravino means that the wine is something so special that it is “beyond wine, [“-stra means “beyond” in Italian].
This is the wine of our great native vine: the Turbiana. Fully ripe grapes are harvested around the middle of October and the highly productive land gives us a product with structure and a great capacity for ageing. All its complexity is tangible to the taste. To the nose, there are hints of ripe fruit, peaches, yellow apples, rose petals with fresh, balsamic notes. The palate is enveloped by an invasion of flavour, maintaining all its freshness and elegance. The full structure is accompanied by a taut acidity and a characteristic savouriness that completely cleans the palate, leaving it full of delicate aromas. Perfect for winter soups, legumes and pasta with white sauces, white meat and poultry, medium seasoned cheese, fished cooked long and well and shellfish.
The southern banks of the Benaco have long preserved the tradition of an outstanding, fresh and graceful wine like the Rosa dei Frati. A high level Rosé with a great capacity to surprise with its simple authority. Fresh, delicate yet sharp at the same time, it is capable of being the centrepiece of the table. To the nose, there are clear hints of hawthorn flowers, green apple, white almond and wild cherry. In the mouth, it is tasty, fresh, savoury and able to stimulate the palate thanks to its sharp acidity and hints of small red fruit. The ease of drinking encourages a carefree attitude by the second glass. Recommended with cured meats, fried vegetables, mushrooms, tomato and mozzarella salad, delicate pasta and spring risottos, light white meat and strongly flavoured fish.
The Cerretalto is the synthesis of intuition, passion and vision, characteristics that have been a continual expression of Casanova di Neri.
An extraordinary concentration of mineral in the soil imparts an unique impression only in certain vintages and only thanks to a Sangiovese grape from small, straggly bunches. With this decisive contribution of human dedication, love for the work of the earth and great attention in the cellar can a wine reach exceptional quality, personality and unique style that fully expresses the territory of its origin.
