Soave 'Lepiga', Tenuta Santa Maria

  • 100% Garganega from 60+ year-old vines sourced entirely from the Bertani family’s Lepia vineyard at the Tenuta Colognola ai Colli
  • This estate, once a Roman centurion’s farm, is home to a 15th century villa
  • Calcareous clay soils atop marly subsoil
  • 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
  • Brief pre-fermentation skin contact
  • Vinified in stainless steel and aged on the fine lees for three months
  • Low yields and high-density planting
