Producing classic wines from the Veneto is our passion. In the 1950s Giuseppe Inama, the estate's founder, began purchasing small plots of vineyards in the heart of the Soave Classico region using nothing more than his savings - at that time, few understood the area's potential. But Giuseppe was a believer. His idea was to assemble only top quality vineyards of old-vine Garganega and fashion from them a wine capable of restoring Soave's reputation. Today our estate comprises more than 25 hectares of vineyards in the very heart of the Soave Classico. In the 1990s we decided to expand our production to include red wines and, after much research, settled on the Colli Berici, a system of terrarossa hills some 15 kilometres (10 miles) east of Soave in the neighbouring province of Vicenza. At first glance the two zones appear to have little in common but they share one fundamental element: the possibility to produce wines reflecting a unique terroir. Each terroir is best expressed through a different variety. In the Soave Classico appellation the steep hills and the meagre basalt soils are carpeted with Garganega. An intensely aromatic variety, it was first planted here by the Romans and was originally known as "Grecanicum", a reference to its Greek origins, although it arrived here from Sicily via Campania where its cousin, Greco, is still widely planted. Isolated from its family, it gradually mutated through hundreds of generations. The name changed and so did the vine: its current, floral iteration gives voice to the inimitable blend of Alpine and Mediterranean influences found in Soave. Read less

Tight and focused on the nose with a thin veneer of oak restraining peppery and spicy herb infused plum and slightly tarry black currant fruit. Soft and smooth, and down right plush on entry with late arriving acids that help lend this a more lively character. the fruit is a bit dark and chewy with subtle herbal and medicinal licorice hints adding detail in the mouth. Air brings out the cocoa note of Merlot on the nose and the fruit gets plumper and plummier in the mouth,. though on the backend this retains tension and a firmness that is appealing. The finish is fairly long and quite structured, firm even with lingering earthy fruit and dried floral notes that bode well for additional development in the bottle. 89pts

The palate is smooth, velvety and full of ripe fruit; blackcurrant colour, woody nose followed by spicy fruit. Balanced oak and tannins. Mouth-feel is very smooth with soft but juicy fruits with sufficient acidity to accompany food well.

I tried this one at one of my favorite restaurants (Grazie). It wnet very well with salad and thin crust brick oven pizza. Yummy. Perfect blend and balance for light Italian food

Dichtes dunkles Rot, riecht nach Kakao und schwarzem Pfeffer, würzig, komplex, dicht, wirkt harmonisch, rund, toller Abgang.
