Cantina di Gambellara

Veneto, veneto Italy

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. In 2015, this Cantina merged with the Cantina Colli Vicentini (from whom we buy the Ca' di Alte wines) and Alberto Marchisio is now responsible for winemaking.

Alberto has selected the best grapes from the volcanic hills of the denomination's natural amphitheatre to make his Gambellara Classico. The Garganega grapes were briefly macerated and then fermented at low temperatures. The resulting wine is dry and scented, displaying a pronounced minerality and a long finish. The Merlot is riper and better structured than many wines made from this variety in the Veneto. The Pinot Grigio is made by Matt Thomson. Matt started making wine here in 2017 but we decided to start bottling only from the 2018 vintage.

The Durello Spumante is a Charmat method sparkling made from Durello grapes grown in the mountainous Lessini area. This variety has been grown in this area since the Middle Ages. Thick skinned with good acidity, it has a distinct character that sets it apart from other sparkling wines from northeastern Italy.
