Some information about the vine that we grow obtaining our 5 different expressions of Garganega!
The Garganega vine is the most important indigenous white grape variety in the provinces of Verona and Vicenza, and dominates the hills of the Soave and Gambellara DOC areas. Garganega does not have its own distinct aroma, but a wealth of scents including almonds and white flowers, and has a very long biological development, reaching maturity in October. It has a hard skin and is particularly yellow (almost red) when ripe.
The leaf is medium-sized, pentagonal, somewhat elongated.
The ripe bunch is up to 25 cm long, cylindrical-pyramidal in shape and with well-developed ‘wings’ (side branches of the bunch), rather sparse.
The berry is medium-sized with a deep golden-yellow skin that becomes amber-yellow and leathery in good exposure.
The resulting wine starts out straw-yellow to amber in colour for the Recioto, with floral and almond scents, and is fresh and savoury on the palate.
