Il Vecchio Vigneto
San Martino della Battaglia DOC

This DOC – one of the smallest in Italy – is based on the Tuchì grape, as our grandparents used to call Tocai (now Friulano).

With this well-structured yet fresh and pleasantly citrusy wine, we are proud to carry on a tradition that is deeply rooted in this area.


Grape variety: 100% Tuchì di San Martino della Battaglia
Very limited production and little-known; typical of Lake Garda

Type of soil: morainic, with combinations of clays and limestone, rich in mineral salts

Vines per hectare: 3000

Harvest period: end of September – early October

Type of harvest: manual, in small crates, passing twice through the vineyard

Vinification: in stainless steel

Maturation: in stainless steel for 7 months, around 6 of which on its fine lees 

Alcohol level: 12.5% - 13.0% vol.

Its colour is a pale straw yellow. It has a delightfully delicate nose, conveying sensations of white flowers and fresh almonds.

In the mouth it is elegant, with graceful fruit that underlines its well-balanced flavour; the palate echoes the sensations on the nose, along with an almondy aftertaste.
