"Light-bodied and creamy, here's a well-meshed, minerally white that shows subtle flavors of melon, apple blossom, spice and lemon pith. Fresh. Drink now through 2020. 3,000 cases made. -AN" (WS)

"Vivid golden-tinged straw. Ripe aromas of apple, lemon zest and dried apricot, along with a sweet spice element. Sappy, dense and classically dry, with soft citrus, herbal and spice flavors dominating the palate. Finishes very long and a bit tannic; this youthful wine needs a few years for its components to harmonize completely." (VM)

"A steely and bright white with sliced apple, lemon and stone character. Hints of free herb. Medium body, tight and dense with lovely fruit. Crisp and lively. Drink now." (JS)

Winery Notes:
Graziano Prà has dedicated his life to tending for vines on the ancient black soils of Monteforte d’Alpone. Having harvested the fruits of his father’s work, he gives wine lovers one of the most interesting garganega wines available.

Uncompromising in his search for quality and in the way he interprets the prestigious soils with which he works, his wines all have finesse and elegance with a distinct presence of minerals.

Born as a creator of outstanding white wines, he took on the challenge of La Morandina, an organically farmed vineyard on the higher slopes of the valley of Mezzane that produces authentic and intense wines. Graziano Prà has been managing the winery since the beginning of the 1980s, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather.

He has brought international fame to small wine producing areas such as Colle Sant’Antonio, il Monte Grande and La Morandina, small prestigious cru in quality wine-producing regions.

The approach to his work is based on being true to the land. Graziano’s wines are pure expressions of the land and the grapes. He loves the vine plant and tends to it with great modesty and attention. In the winery, he prefers to keep the fruitiness in his wines and all his research and innovation is based around how to express the outstanding quality of the grapes that arrive from the vineyards to the full.

The implementation of organic agriculture for the wines of the Valpolicella was for him an act of love towards a land which was untouched and uncontaminated and from which the vines steadily rise from the ancient marl fossils.
