The vallagarina, region in northern italy, has been renowned for centuries for its fine quality and variety of distinguished grapes. The distinctive taste of wines produced here, has become a favorite selection of true connoisseurs everywhere.
The reputation of its cabernet, marzemino and schiava wines is due to both a gift of nature and human dedication. soil, rich in basalt; ideal climate; and location (nestled between the mt. baldo and mt. bondone ranges) provide the perfect habitat for our fine grapes. then we add the patience, care, and expertise of our growers and wine makers to produce wines of high excellence.
Geographically, the vineyards are located at the mid-height of the mountains on the right side of the Adige river. As long as can be remembered, grapes have been grown on our lands, and wines produced in our cellars, with records dating back to the mid 1600's.
The production coming only from grapes of our vineyards, is limited but highly selective, and our goal is to produce only genuine, classical wines which we achieve by employing old and well proved wine making procedures.
Our vineyards were once the land of the ancient and illustrious count alberti family, which included one of the prince bishop of trento, and came into possession of my family over a century ago.
The land was part of the dowry of countess ALBERTI when she married Gèza DELL'ADAMI de TARCZAL, admiral of the Royal Austro-Hungarian Fleet , and my direct ancestor.
Our wine production started to flourish in the golden years of the austro-hungarian empire, when Marzemino was always served at the imperial court.
Our cellars, in which aging takes place are entirely built underground, thereby assuring constant temperature and humidity all year round. Our wines are carefully stored in specially selected old wooden casks that enhance their bouquet and quality.
