3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Founded in 1960 by Giuseppe Inama, this 74 acre estate is located in Monte Foscarino, the heart of the Soave Classico region in Italy. Each vineyard imparts a unique element to the blend; the volcanic soil of Classico lends floral aromas and minerality, and the soils found in Colli Berici contribute depth and structure. The terra rossa soil of this sub-appellation are particularly well suited to growing Bordeaux blends and was the first region in Italy to plant Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carmenere. In 1992, Giuseppe handed the reins to his son Stefano who carries on his father’s legacy of minimalist intervention in the vineyards and in the cellar. The grapes are hand-picked and briefly macerated on their skins. After a gentle pressing, the musts are naturally cold settled. In order to preserve the aromas and varietal flavors, the wines are bottled with minimal fining or filtration. “We are organic in the way we grow wines, but don’t declare it”, says Stefano. “It is not a marketing tool: the quality of the wine is the marketing tool.”

Tasting notes
Vivid ruby color offering pronounced aromas of black cherry, damson plum, soy, cocoa and violet integrate well with a well structured core of medium tannins and balanced acids.

Technical notes
(70% Carmenere /30% Merlot). The south facing vineyards, located in Lonigo and San Germano dei Berici, are composed of iron rich clay over limestone. Following 12 days of maceration in stainless steel fermentors the must is racked in steel and aged for 12 months in neutral French oak barriques. After a final racking the wine is filtered and bottled unfined.
