Vigneti di Carbonare Soave Classico
Nestled in a remote corner, Vigneti di Carbonare is a wonderful vineyard of old pergolas which greets the morning sun, overlooking a steep sided valley. In the past, farmers used to harvest wood and peat from here
to produce coal.
The old owner had us taste the Recioto (the local sweet wine) from this vineyard. The purity of this traditional wine was inspirational…so we decided to acquire it!
This plot, located halfway up the hillside with its exposure to the East, has a noticeably different microclimate compared to Foscarino. The fresh air comes down from the Val dAlpone and its Piccole Dolomiti. The natural balance of the plants and the adjacent streams told us that water flows underneath, a precious resource for producing a great white wine.
The basalt, which characterizes the ground in most of the Soave Classico, has great chromatic complexity here, fading from black to green, red and orange.
The strong character of the vineyard is evident in the grapes: joyful aromas of citrus, effervescent acidity, mineral freshness.
This is how the “Vigneti di Carbonare” label is born.
