The name GRANSELVA derives from Selva di Montebello, the place where the grapes for this wine are produced. Young 10-year-old vines of the garganega, durella and chardonnay varieties, pressed directly as whole clusters without maceration, which ferment in stainless steel tanks.
The maturation always takes place in stainless steel, for about 7 months before bottling, to create a fresh, fruity wine with high acidity and freshness to be tasted both as an aperitif and accompanied with various foods.

Garganega is the local grape variety on the volcanic hillsides of Gambellara. Our vineyards are located in a small sub-zone called Creari where the soils also have a proportion of limestone, which enables the grape variety to best express itself. On the Gambellara hills, the oldest vines are more than 50 years old.
Durella is a typical and autochthonous variety in the Lessini Hills, characterized by a marked acidity, a characteristic that makes it particularly suitable for sparkling wines. It reaches maturity between the middle and the end of September. Excellent when combined with garganega because one completes the other and becomes even more beguiling, especially in a blend like Granselva.
The small chardonnay vineyard, with young plants about 10 years’ old, is used to produce some of the grapes that complete the Granselva blend, making it delicately more aromatic without distorting the two indigenous varieties (garganega and durella) that characterize it. Harvested approximately at the end of August.
GRANSELVA is sapid and mineral; a fresh, fruity wine with high acidity and freshness that can be drunk as an aperitif or at any moment during a meal.
If you want to taste the GRANSELVA, you can book a private tasting in the wine cellar or order some bottles directly.
