Grape harvest, awards and recognitions

It’s about time and almost everything is ready: the winery is ok, agricultural tools are in action, my family is already working so we can say that harvest 2019 has officially begun!
What are my first impressions? By now I have harvested the grapes for Primo Incontro and for Cuvèe dei Vignato and my impressions are absolutely positive!
Harvest is once again in September, as it should be and as it used to be few decades ago; this helps grapes aromatic maturation, which is the result of the thermal excursion day-night.
In my opinion wines will be very sharp and elegant, with high acidity and medium alcohol level. By the end of October, I’ll keep you updated with all the details.

In the meantime, Gambellara Doc “El Gian” 2017 has been recognized, among 26.000 samples coming from all over Italy, by the guide “Vinibuoni d’Italia” of the Italian Touring Club as a wine that represents the bond between grape variety and territory at its best. “El Gian” has been awarded with a Golden Star, this wine is part of the history of my winery and I’m proud about that because, little by little, my commitment for quality and volcanic territory promotion are repaid.

Another recognition comes from the magazine “ORA Cucina”, which each month selects a winery in order to narrate the beauties about Italy through its most representative wines with typical dishes. In September issue there is a wide article about the territory of Gambellara through the story and the wines of my winery.
