Lepiga Soave Doc
Lepiga Soave - Tenuta Santa Maria di Gaetano Bertani

Lepiga Soave

a soave white produced from the veronese garganega varietal, cultivated in our low-yield vineyard for careful fermentation in stainless steel tanks. A pleasant surprise to the palate with both freshness and depth, giving the wine an intriguing and balanced structure.

Intense straw-yellow color. At the nose, a complex aroma with scents of exotic and summer fruits, pears, peaches, herbs, almonds, and a generous minerality, with traces of toasted vanilla. The taste is rich and compact, sustained by freshness, persistent and with a distinct flavor that actually intensifies the softness.

Lepiga is a wine obtained from the Garganega grape. The low production per hectare and the attention during the vinification process allow us to fully express the unique character of this varietal. In this way, Lepiga renews more than a century wine tradition within our family.

harvest, vinification and aging
The grapes are harvested at different times of ripening and separately crushed, with cold pre-fermentation skin contact. Then the grapes are gently pressed and fermented at 16-18°C. The wine is blended in January and stored in stainless steel tanks, in contact with the lees for an extended period of time. There is then a short period of bottle refinement before going to market.
