Monte Carbonare

We always say that this wine “is like a bit of earth in a glass.” And it’s true. In the monte carbonare vineyard the vines sink their roots deep down into the black earth; pure volcano. This gives the wine personality: forthright and truthful, with a sharp mineral nature.

VINEYARD

It covers an area of 6 hectares facing north-east and north-west within the u.g.a. Carbonare at an altitude of 280 meters.
The area is characterized by deep volcanic soils with a clayey texture which have a particularly dark color (black basalts) reminiscent of coal, and the toponym "Carbonare" seems to derive from this characteristic.
Here the Garganega vines, planted with the traditional “pergola veronese” training system, reach an average age of about 60 years.
