The grapes for this single vineyard wine are grown in the `Montegrande` vineyard. a site with superb exposure and vines which are on average 30 years old. The vineyard is 250-300 metres above sea level and soils are volcanic in origin. The wine was made using small-batch vinification in mid-October. The grapes were pressed gently using special presses. The must was fermented in small barrels and in 15 hectolitre barrels, where it remained for about one year until bottling.
Cantina di Monteforte was established in March 1952, like a society between 80 winegrowers of the zone with the common love for the land and the grapevine, in a sunny area of hills, dedicated to preserve the quality of wine. Now, the Cantina di Monteforte group amounts to 600 members with 1300 hectares of vineyard (80% of which is in the D.O.C.). The vinification and the cure used in the production of the wines, are the results of great technology closely tied to traditional techniques.
Pale gold in colour, this wine opens with a fresh, scented nose that shows hints of white fruit and the characteristic almond blossom character of top quality Soave. Honeyed, waxy and complex on the palate, with a lovely citrus twist on the finish, it is well balanced and long.
