THE WINE
The company, since it was born in 1935, has always produced wines from red berried grapes. In 2015 Carlo wished to realize a product that can enrich his wines offer. He experiments with this challenge with the grape “Garganega”. Garganega is a grape peel hard, particularly yellow, almost red when ripe  Thanks to “bâtonnage" technique this  white acquires an increase of the wine’s body sensation and a better development of certain aromas. This operation takes about six months and it consists in keeping suspended the "noble lees" shaking the wine after alcoholic fermentation.


THE PAIRING 

Mussels, scallops, lobster, a variety of fish, and grilled poultry. Consider using an herbal base, like chives in butter, to highlight the green notes in the wine.
