Tamellini winery

Garganega vineyards. Visit the cellar and walks through the vineyards of Soave. 26 hectares in the hills of Soave, all planted with Garganega: this is the reality of Tamellini cellar, a place where tradition, passion for their land and history come together to give birth to a beautiful landscape, but above all with great wines.

Since the time of the Gauls and the Romans the hills around Soave are considered a highly suitable area, thanks to the peculiar composition of volcanic origin soil and mild climate, cooled by currents coming from Lake Garda.

What amazes the Tamellini cellar is the serenity with which you work, the mix between tradition and desire to elevate the Garganega to take it at the highest level, so that the Garganega is the only variety grown.

The treatments are virtually absent due to ideal conditions and with careful management of the vineyard that regulates itself according to the rhythms of nature, but that does not obviate the attentive care of Gaetano and Piocesare. Each type of fertilizer was banned and for wine aging is only chose steel, to keep pure wines, crisp and free of any contamination.

Style of Tamellini wines

The wines reflect the terroir Tamellini Soave, expressing bottomless depth and subtle elegance that is articulated through states of layers of minerality. The fruit is intense, fleshy, but always sharp. The quality/price ratio has few equals.

White Soave DOC 2012

Bright gold. The nose offers a graceful sequence of wisteria, boxwood, yellow flowers and ripe fruit slowly maturing on the background of aromatic herbs, marine notes and refined mineral recalls. The palate is enveloping, multifaceted, always savory and refreshed by an acidity that tastes like lime and orange peel.
