A new producer to us, working with old vines in the Veneto (Italy). These young wine makers are working organic with minimal intervention not surprisingly.
Monteforte d'Alpone is a comune in the Province of Verona in the Italian region Veneto, located about 80 kilometres west of Venice and about 25 kilometres east of Verona, near the borders of Soave.
We love this 20 day skin contact Garganega - it's clean, aged in cement which accounts for it's approachable fresh nature and pleasant fruitiness. Golden honey hue, gooseberries and oolong tea umami and fresh aromatics.
