Arturo’s vines


Arturo and his family in the vineyard

Arturo’s Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave vines spread their roots in the dark volcanic soil of the hills of the Soave Classico area.
The changing of the seasons dictate the pace of work in the vineyards. From pruning to picking, a time-honoured tacit agreement is forged between nature and experience…

 

CARNIGA

Orientation: South-West Altitude: 90-110 above sea level. In the highest part of this area, the soil is slightly sloping and fairly deep, with a chalky bedrock and a moderately alkaline character. In the lowest part, known as the “Carcera”, we find a mix of very rich soils with a silty-clay loam texture, less alkaline, and some deposits of the surrounding elevations. The Cantina del Castello produces a Cru that is aged in stainless steel tanks for several months, the Carniga, which is known for its notable propensity for aging.

 

PRESSONI

Orientation: South-East Altitude: 200 mt above sea level. The soil in this area is clayish with a basaltic bedrock, slightly chalky and very slightly alkaline. Slopes are significant. The Cantina del Castello’s selection in this area originates the Pressoni Soave Classico, a wine deeply embedded in the traditional style, and which expresses the typical Soave character, even after just a few months. This drinkability is combined with a strong propensity for aging in the bottle, even for several years.
