The Lake Garda microclimate which the hilly area above Bardolino enjoys produces Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella grapes at a naturally high level of maturation. This is why Le Nogare is such a fresh young wine, just like the breezes blowing over the lake, with a strikingly bright ruby red colour, and scents of stewed cherries. What helps to maintain this particular colour and taste is the decision not to use wood for the maceration process: instead, we use cement vats faced with glass tiles. Its sophisticated simplicity makes this wine one of our brightest and lightest products.

The morenic hills on the eastern coast of Lake Garda, in the town of Bardolino. Morenic soil, almost gravely.
The manual harvest takes place in the third week of September. Vinification begins with grapes picked from the bunches pressed and put in steel tanks (large and downs, suited to increase contact between skins and must limit mechanical) with a temperature of fermentation between 18-20°C.
