For our Soave we only employ one grape variety: Garganega. A large sparse bunch and a medium-sized berry are the typical features of this autochthonous variety of the eastern part of Verona. Through selective cryoextraction – a partial freezing of the grapes – we preserve the natural aromas and flavours of the grape and prevent oxidation, bringing in the glass all the aromatic potential of the fresh Garganega grapes. Other important elements to enhance the varietal aromatic components are: the microclimate of the bunch and the temperature of fermentation – always kept below 14° C.
