Founded back in 1925, Fasoli Gino turned to organic viticulture in 1980 and, since 1984, all of their land has been farmed organically. The meticulous viticulture practice includes: grass grown under the vines, manuring with bovine dung, balanced pruning to guarantee a low yield, parasite control using natural products and predators, hand picking done at different times to select grapes at their optimum ripening point. The vinification is carried out with the use of modern technology whilst respecting the criteria of organic production.
Grape Variety: 100% Garganega
Alcohol Volume: 13.5%
Aging: After careful selection, the grapes are hung up on vertical wires to dry in the fruit drying loft for 5-6 months. Toward the end of February, the grapes are pressed softly. Fermentation is carried out in barriques for 15 – 20 days. The wine is matured in barrique for a further 24 – 30 months.
