Description


Giovanni Menti strongly believes in his terroir of Gambellara and in the effectiveness of biodynamic agriculture, but not as much in appellations and certifications. What you have here is one of the best drinking orange wines we have stumbled upon lately, made with Garganega grapes macerated for 32 days.

Menti


Menti Giovanni is a family firm founded at the end of XIX century in Gambellara. The founder, Menti Giovanni who was the grandfather of the actual owner (also his name is Giovanni) started the business with the wine he was producing for his own consumption. Nowadays the firm is cultivating 7,5 ha of garganega and durella vines in Gambellara and Lessini classic hilly area. From these grapes are produced white still dry wines, white fizzy and sparkling wines, and also some sweet wines from resin fruits. All works are managed directly by Giovanni and his son Stefano, from taking care of the vines to the bottling process (sparkling process included). The cultivation of vineyards is organic using biodynamic methods and in cellar are used only natural yeasts to better keep the characteristics of Gambellara terroir.
