The. Agr. GINI SANDRO and CLAUDIO
I Gini: family of winemakers since 1500 so much so that studies have brought to light that in Contrada Salvarenza this family already owned some vineyards. The knowledge has been handed down for generations to Olinto Gini, born in early 900 and father of Sandro, Claudio, Martha who today carry on this age-old tradition. Olinto farmer and winemaker with an imposing build as much as his passion for the land and the life it gave him, he had huge hands, thick and worn out from work on his land and his vines. Sometimes I wonder how it was possible that so strong and "bulky" limbs could treat a fragile fruit like grapes with so much care. He loved and cared for his lands with tradition and innovation by working in harmony with nature: were the first in 1985, and it has always been like that ever since, to vinify without the use of sulfur dioxide. This, has in fact revolutionized the world of oenology by opening up to all new possibilities and visions in the world of wine production. Both in their vineyards and in the cellar, the idea of not using any kind of chemical support has changed what to do and when: "Now our most important task", as Sandro says,”Is to make the screws talk, the grapes and knowing how to listen to them ". Biological and Biodynamic always.
The suave La Froscà it takes its name from the hill where the grapes are grown. The area is still Monteforte d’Alpone and the vineyards are the same as in Salvarenza. The grapes always have an average age of 80 years and for the Froscà the grapes from the highest part of the hill are chosen a 180 meters above sea level: the marked thermal excursion and the clayey-clay soils allow this Soave a wide bouquet of both aromas and flavors also enriched by a specific processing that provides for a vinification of a part of the must in steel and a part in wood. In the glass it is straw yellow with beautiful golden reflections and the nose is very broad with hints that vary from ripe fruit such as pear, peach and citrus notes of orange and grapefruit and also notes of almond and then finish with spicy hints and vanilla accents. On the palate it is harmonious, delicate, well balanced and the hints of smell are well recognized on the sip with a mineral and fresh finish. Great white, lets enjoy its wealth with ease.
