Elisabetta and Sergio Fagiuoli came to Montenidoli in 1965, enticed there by the beauty of the 13th century paintings here. Elisabetta had the land in her blood, from being brought up in a family that cultivated vines and olive trees in Custoza since the 1700’s, and after spending her youth wandering the vineyards of Valpolicella. When they arrived at the vineyards, it was in total disrepair, serious work was needed. The vines were overgrown with brambles. They began by breaking up the earth to create hummus. They also raised earthworms and bred rabbits for their manure.
TASTING NOTE: Pearly-pink, almost translucent this is the most delicate and yet strong "rose" wine. The nose suggests crushed fresh rose petals, the mouth bristles with watermelon freshness and the finish mixes minerals and
herbs for that bit extra.
