The Garganega grapes for this wine were grown on the hillside vineyards situated next to the Soave zone in the Val d`Alpone.
The vineyards have excellent south east exposure, with soils of volcanic origin. The hillside sites give the fruit great concentration.
The Trebbiano is all Trebbiano di Soave from spalliera-trained vineyards, producing grapes with a lovely aromatic depth.
The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed and crushed then pumped to the press without the addition of sulphur.
The juice was chilled immediately and naturally settled. Cultured yeasts were added to initiate fermentation, which took place at around 14°C in order to retain freshness and fruit flavours.
The wine was bottled young to preserve fresh fruit character.
The Cantina di Monteforte d’Alpone was constituted in March of 1952 like a society between 80 winegrowers of the zone, with the common love for the land and the grapevine ,in a sunny area of hills, dedicated to preserve the quality of wine. http://www.cantinadimonteforte.it/eng/azienda.php
