Cantina di Gambellara Gambellara Classico
The wine is dry and scented, displaying a pronounced minerality and a long finish. It has yellow peach aromas and a touch of spice, which adds complexity.
The Cantina di Gambellara was founded in 1947 and has nearly 300...
members who farm 600 hectares in this small denomination on the border between the provinces of Vicenza and Verona only a few miles east of Soave. Last year, this cantina merged with the Cantina dei Colli Vicentini (from whom we buy the Ca’ de Alte wines) and Alberto Marchisio is now responsible for winemaking.
The Garganega grapes are grown on selected vineyards on the hills of the commune of Gambellara, a region known for winemaking since the Roman times. All vineyards are at least 20 years old and their volcanic soils are derived from basalts, providing an abundance of minerals that allow grapes to ripen fully and develop aromatic richness. The natural amphitheatre of hills surrounding Gambellara reach an altitude of 500 metres above sea level, however the vineyard is planted between 100-350 metres on a north-south facing slope, as this provides the best combination of aspect, soil composition and solar radiation. In the past, grapes from the vineyards were traditionally used for the Vinsanto di Gambellara, however their high level of quality today makes for excellent young, fresh white wine.
