Garganega is the indigenous grape variety from Gambellara area. El Gian is made using exclusively these grapes, which grow on the volcanic soils of the hills above Gambellara. The average age of the vines is 25 years. In order to keep the grapes whole, the harvest is manual and the grapes are brought to the winery using crates. The wine is left in stainless steel tanks unitl the end of its maturation, which occurs by the end of Spring. El Gian has a delicate bouquet, with fruity and floral aromas. In the mouth you discover the volcanic soil: salty and mineral. A young and fresh wine, perfect for everyday meal, as the peasant traditions teach. This wine is a tribute to my father Gian Domenico.
