Garganega is the principal grape variety in Soave which is grown east of Verona, less than an hour from Le Fraghe, and is indigenous to the area. ‘Camporengo’ is the name of the place where the Garganega vineyard is located.
This fresh, attractive white wine, bottled in the year following the vintage. The wine has a straw yellow color with green reflections; the slight veiling that shows when waving the bottle is represented by the fermentation yeast that rests inside the bottle. Mature fruity notes of white peach and apricot on the nose. Bottled under screwcap, which retains the varietal delicacy better than cork.
