These wines are made by Matt Thomson at the Cantina di Monteforte. Verona's 'Ponte Pietra' (stone bridge) dates back to Roman times, although vines have been planted on the hills outside of Verona for much longer than this bridge has spanned the Adige River.

The Garganega grapes for this wine were grown on the hillside vineyards situated next to the Soave zone in the Val d'Alpone. The vineyards have excellent south east exposure, with soils of volcanic origin. The hillside sites give the fruit great concentration. The Trebbiano is all Trebbiano di Soave from spalliera-trained vineyards, producing grapes with a lovely aromatic depth.

2014 was one of the trickiest vintages seen since 1984. It was a mild and wet winter, so pests and pathogens flourished. This led to lots of disease pressure in the vineyards, especially as it was a wet summer. Nevertheless, wines from around Verona look good and are more aromatic than last year and lighter in body than previous vintages. In general, the whites have a higher acidity than seen in recent years so need a bit more time on their lees to fatten out. Garganega, being a late ripener, was largely unaffected by disease and benefitted from the Indian summer that arrived from about mid September onwards.


Pale lemon in colour, with aromas of almond blossom and green apples. This wine is lively on the palate with a touch of marzipan and honey from the Garganega. Crisp, with citrus flavours on the finish.
