“True connoisseurs do not drink wine. tasted secrets“. Salvador Dalì

SOTTOSOPRA

La Follia

A turbulent wine, produced according to the traditional method for white wine, without sulfur but with a little craziness and and a lot of enthusiasm. A classically produced wine that is in constant evolution. We sell it after at least 18-24 month on the yeast, we allow our clients to decide the complexity and further evolution according to their taste and requirements.

A wine in constant evolution, literally “turbolento”/turbulent as the yeasts of the second fermentation remain in the bottle, so that after opening it, you will notice the classical turbid colour from which this wine derives its name. Our folly pushes us to discover the possibilities of this new creation and the constant work we put in makes “Sottosopra” (upside-down) a unique wine in its genre.

LUCONE

Garda Classico Groppello d.o.p.

Terroir

Lucone is a large lake, a wide wood, a great vine. Time lives beneath the surface and it reveals itself in the archaeological remains that lies within. The Palaeolithic gave to the Lake Garda region a jar containing, besides cereal seeds, a vine seed.

From the first light of the beginning a line of reality and image starts, joining us together in a dream: the objective continuity that turns existence into a tradition to share and preserve.

RE DESIDERIO

Il Blend

The voice of Lake Garda listens to the echoes of the surrounding hills. Valtenesi satisfies its need of strength with its being in that  place in which it lies.

The intense red of Re Desiderio is made of the last autumn sun, the evolving taste and scent of the season and the tone of the vine leaves.

CHIARETTO

Riviera del Garda Classico Chiaretto D.O.P.

The Pink

Chiaretto is a historical production of Valtènesi and the entire Lake Garda, and the traditional technique has its roots in the work of the Venetian senator Pompeo Molmenti who, having married a rich woman of Salò, owned a villa and some vineyards in Moniga del Garda.

It is said that the Molmenti’s intuition was born during a trip to France, where he would have appreciated the local rosé wines and would have studied their production methods. Back in Italy, in 1896 he applied “White” winemaking  to the traditional grapes of Garda region, that is Groppello, Marzemino, Barbera and Sangiovese, thus creating and spreading  a type of rosé still produced and appreciated over the years.
