Soave 'Lepiga', Tenuta Santa Maria

Soave 'Lepiga', Tenuta Santa Maria
  • 100% Garganega  sourced entirely from the Bertani family’s Lepia vineyard at the Tenuta Colognola ai Colli
  • 6 hectares of Gaetano Bertani’s 60+-year-old Garganega vines
  • Low yield, high-density planting
  • Calcareous clay soil atop marly subsoil
  • The grapes see three different harvests: the first to preserve the acidity, the second for optimal ripeness, and the third to add richness and weight to the wine
  •  Short pre-fermentation skin contact then vinified in stainless steel
  • Aged on the fine lees for three months
  • 2,100 cases produced annually
