VINEYARD | Roeno winery is located in Brentino Belluno, a small town in the province of Verona, very close to Trentino. It is a real borderland, marked by the Doc Valdadige and the newly-born Doc Terra dei Forti. Its proximity to the Trentodoc vineyards, however, led to the birth of a great Metodo Classico in the early 2000s. A small vineyard and exclusively Chardonnay grapes give rise to Dèkatos, a mountain bubbly whose grapes ripen at an altitude of about 500 meters.
PEOPLE | Here, great value is given to the territory through the wines. It happened with the Valdadige wines under the parent company Roeno, and with the ones of Von Blumen, a small business in Salorno, in the province of Bolzano. But now Cristina, Roberta and Giuseppe Fugatti are putting in efforts and passion for a great Metodo Classico. With the complicity of oenologist Mirko Maccani, we are admiring a Trento of outstanding value, whose name was inspired by a trip to Greece, that also determined some of its characteristics, starting with the less aging for over 10 years. True brainchild of the Fugatti family, it represents the summa of many great bottles tasted together.
WINE | Agreeable, graceful, elegant, very fresh, fragrant, persistent. We could go on and on, but the key to understanding this great Metodo Classico is clear. We are dealing with a masterpiece of Italian sparkling winemaking, a wine of rare finesse. Made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes, it is the result of a very long lees aging that lends complexity, fullness and character. On the nose is explosive between notes of pastry and sweet spices, even if white flowers and citrus zest take center stage here. Full mouthfeel, creamy carbonic, and a well-dosed acidity that fits perfectly with the matter. Very clean finish and savory streak that closes the sip. A standout.
