Product Overview

At Balestri Valda the art of a modern winemaking estate combines with the best aspects of ancient and noble traditions. This land has always been considered ideal for vine growing. The hills to the north of Soave, the location of the estate's vineyards, are of basaltic origin with good texture and a high sand content which favours root expansion and absorption of nutrient elements.

An optimum climate and southern exposure with many hours of sunshine ensures the grapes accumulate just the right sugar content. Garganega vines occupy 70% of the vineyards, Trebbiano di Soave 30%.

These unique vines are essential for producing the typical wines of this zone, Soave and Recioto.

Grape Variety: 100% Garganega

Region: Veneto

Tasting Notes:

Only the ripest grapes are selected and naturally dried for around six months prior to fermentation. The wine is then aged for 24 months in oak barrels and a further 12 months in the bottle.

The resulting wine has a beautiful rich yellow gold brightness in the glass with an intense, softly fruity aroma and sumptuous sweet juicy flavours etched with almond.

Food Pairing:

Well matched to hard sheep’s milk cheeses, desserts or foie-gras.
