Tasting Notes

This wine delights with bright fresh fruit on the nose, and notes of cherry, liquorice and black pepper which continue through to the palate.

Producer details

The estate was founded by Alberto Malesani, famous in Italy as a former manager of both Fiorentina and Parma. While at Parma, he won the UEFA cup in 1999. His passion and intelligence is now channelled into this estate, where he is helped by consultant winemaker Lorenzo Caramazza, formerly of Cantina Valpantena. The name La Giuva is an acronym of his daughters’ initials, Giulia and Valentina, who are heavily involved in the business. The balance, concentration and aromatic intensity marks the wines out from the crowd in Valpolicella, and makes La Giuva one of the region’s rising stars. Production is tiny, and won’t get that much higher than its current level of 18,000 bottles until the new vineyards come into production.

In the vineyard

La Giuva's estate covers ten hectares (only five hectares of which are in production) in a cool site in the Val Squaranto, a small valley between the Valpantena and the valley of Mezzane. The vineyards are planted on the top of the hill, at an altitude of 350- 400 metres above sea level, and are picked later than most sites in the hills east of Verona.

In the winery

The grapes were fermented at 22°C with skin contact. After about 10 days it was drawn off leaving the wine in steel tanks to complete malolactic fermentation. Ageing took place in stainlesssteel tanks for three months to retain fresh fruit notes.
