The last few years have seen this estate become as recognised for its reds as it had been for its whites. Bradisismo, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère reflects Stefano’s new approach to vinification. With the grapes harvested at optimal maturity a cool fermentation is all that’s required to extract the necessary polyphenols whilst more complex aromatics are preserved. Stef now uses this technique for all his reds including the cocoa and soy sauce-tinged Carmenère Più.
The whites continue to define the Soave terroir. Soave Classico and Vigneti di Foscarino are both excellent and seem to improve further with every vintage. The Vulcaia Sauvignon is a magnificent creature with a captivating nose of yellow plum, hints of pineapple, and a mineral edge all wrapped up in a crisp and blissfully oak-free package. The Vulcaia Fumé is treated to 30% new French oak, just what the tropical waxy fruit requires.
