✌️Massimo Ronca’s Garganega is a summer requirement. At this price point, this wine drinks far above its weight class. If you drink Italian white wine, there’s a decent chance you’ve consumed this grape without perhaps knowing. Garganega’s most important place of production is an area 50 miles west of Venice called Soave , basically pronounced the same as “Suave,” as in “Rico Suave. Organic farming and entirely BIO line of the Ronca Agricultural Company.”
"This particular garganega is made just west of Soave, but exudes enormously pleasurable fruit like the best Soaves. This wine is packed with peach and apple flavors, and lemon that sings out of the glass for patio drinking. Tangerine and marjoram teasing as well. If you tire of aggressive sauvignon blanc flavors, but like dry wine, this is a must try"
The hills where our cellar stands have a thousand-year history.
The erosive process induced by the glacier caused on one hand the birth of Lake Garda, and on the other the formation of the morainic hills on which today the vineyards lay. The slopes are strongly inclined, ranging from 6 to 20%. The landscape is very discontinuous and fascinating. Another factor that strongly characterizes the terroir is the climate. The currents coming from the lake, mitigating the temperatures, create a microclimate which tends to be atypical Mediterranean for an area of northern Italy. Thanks to these climatic characteristics, the Garda area becomes particularly suited for the cultivation of wine vines and olive trees.
As you leave Sommacampagna you will see innumerable shrines, churches, hermitages, convents, monasteries. They are not only places of prayer and spiritual retreat, but are also appreciated for their artistic and cultural beauty. Perfectly preserved Venetian villas embellish the landscape, culminating in the magical Borghetto sul Mincio, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. ❣️
