Soave Classico ‘Salvarenza’, Gini

Salvarenza is a tiny sub-plot of the La Froscà Cru and home to the Gini’s centenarian vines, some of which are prephylloxera. The grapes are hand-harvested and fermented in small oak cask. Malolactic fermentation and aging takes place in oak, with the wine resting on its lees for 18 months before bottling. No sulphites are added to the grape must prior to fermentation; Sandro Gini was the first in Italy to try this method in 1985.
