About the Producer

The long history of Santi started in Val d’Illasi in 1843. The deep connection of the business with the area, the expertise of the oenologists and the unrelenting drive for “unique” quality has produced consistent success with wines such as the Soave Vigneti di Monteforte and Amarone Proemio.

Vineyard

The Cà Bordenis vineyard is a 5.09 hectare cru located at Calmasino di Bardolino. It is planted using the Guyot system and faces Lake Garda with a south-east exposure at an altitude of 130 metres a.s.l. The land, eroded by the Wurnian glaciation, is quite poor but rich in calcium with a hard stony skeleton; this limits yields to jus 8-10 tons of grapes per hectare. Many consider this vineyard to be an example of the most correct agronomic management of the classic Bardolino area and it is used by the local bodies as the best example for monitoring the pedoclimatic conditions and grapes ripeness.

Vinification

The perfectly healthy and ripe grapes are picked at the end of September and, after crushing, are kept in tanks at a low temperature for a few days. After this cold pre-fermentation maceration, the temperature is allowed to rise and start a slow fermentation of 6-8 days. Various systems of temperature control are used to suit the structural and aromatic components and to enhance the primary and micro-climatic qualities of the grapes.

Ageing

After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is allowed to refine in stainless steel tanks and then rests in its bottle for some time before being released.

Tasting Notes

Deep, ruby red colour; fresh and fragrant bouquet, with strong hints of raspberry and wild cherry, spices and flowers; fruity and particularly savoury flavour, with good body and excellent length.
