About The Producer Cantina Le Mandolare
For over half a century the winery Le Mandolare has been making wine from the grapes born from the vineyards of Brognoligo, Castelcerino, Fittà and Monteforte, in the cradle of the Soave wine. A corner of the earth that had already been chosen by the Bishops of Verona for their idle gatherings back in the sixteenth century. Indeed, getting to this place from the city, the prelates found in the natural environment, still at times uncontaminated today, that natural garden created by the hills of the Alpone valley. Also for this reason the harvests needed for the wine making are selected with the goal of respecting the typologies of the area and, consequently, the natural heritage of the territory, which a decree of the Ministry of the Environment once defined as “… depictable as natural environment at 360°…”. When we speak about the “Le Mandolare” products, the Soave Superiore Docg Classico, the Soave Doc Classico and the Recioto di Soave Docg, we are talking of a process that goes from the harvesting of the grapes to the planting of the vineyards, all rigorously carried out by hand. Thus, only such a passion, traditional but in the forefront, can create wines that are able to satisfy even the most demanding palates.
