Absolute nectar! The best bunches of grapes -in this case those with the highest sugar level and with a low number of grapes - are selected from the various Garganega vineyards. Another selection is made in the winery and the bunches are hung on vertical nets where they are left to dry for five or six months. Following fermentation, the wine is matured in oak barriques for 15-18 months.

Fasoli Gino

Fasoli Gino turned to organic viticulture in 1980 and since 1984 all of their land has been farmed organically. The nature of the land (partly clay and partly a mix of stones and sand), and the favourable microclimate (the wide and sunny valley, protected from the north by the Lessini mountains) make the area particularly suitable for vine growing. Currently the estate is cultivating 14 hectares of vineyards divided into seven parts: Casétta, Cassòla, Creàri, Pessétta, Perantònie, Orgno and Sànde. The type of land varies from one vineyard to the other, which has helped determine which varietals should be planted. In the clay soil there are 30–40 year old garganega vines, traditionally used for Soave wine. Where the soil is stony and sandy, some clones of chardonnay, merlot and pinot noir have been planted. The meticulous viticultural practices include: grass grown under the vines; manuring with bovine dung; balanced pruning to guarantee a low yield; parasite control using natural products and predators, and hand picking done at different times to select grapes at their optimum ripening point. The vinification is carried out with the use of modern technology whilst respecting the criteria of organic production.

Customer Reviews

Must buy Review by PelicanBeat
I simply cannot recommend this wine highly enough. Sensational quality, and even though the price is quite high, it's a bargain compared to top Sauternes etc, to which I think this compares favourably in quality. (Posted on 04/01/2017)
