There is a time for everything, even for the harvest!
And we are really entering in these months full of inebriating aromas and surprising wines.
In fact, just before the start of the production of our EVO oil, in the Valpolicella and Soave area as well as in those of the Prosecco Valdobbiadene and Lugana, you can breathe an busy air, but just as electrified and excited, for the new harvest that is about to begin.
Here at Bonamini, as good farmers and lovers of what our land gives us, in addition to extra virgin olive oil, we have a great passion for the classic wines of our area. “Niche” wines but also of national and international fame, table wines such as Valpolicella wine or Soave wine, but also wines such as the classic Prosecco for aperitifs or Amarone della Valpolicella as a meditation gem on autumn evenings.
The fruits of our land must not be wasted, because if only by putting a little more elbow grease we can produce something exceptional… why should we deprive ourselves and the rest of the world of those products considered, at international level, Italian food and wine masterpieces?
Ours is a limited line of wines that perfectly matches the varying that instead constitutes our production of extra virgin olive oil.
Cort’Emilia Bonamini, so we decided to name it, in honor of grandmother Emilia who rolled up her sleeves during the Second World War and replanted and modernized the farm left by her late husband; thus becoming a symbol and, for us, a model and example to follow.
Part of the grapes she cultivated are now vinified and the resulting product is a tribute to grandmother Emilia, whose wines still retain her character.
1. SOAVE DOC: produced with Garganega and Chardonnay grapes, with an alcohol content of 12.5%. A white wine that is straw yellow colored with some greenish reflections, with a floral scent capable of leaving that harmonious and soft flavor in the mouth. Soave wine goes well with appetizers and first courses of fish and shellfish, as well as second courses of white or boiled meat. Like the classic Soave, the wine is served chilled in crystal glasses, making it the ideal choice for a summer aperitif.
2. LUGANA DOC: with a slightly higher alcohol content (13%), Lugana wine is produced with Trebbiano di Lugana, capable of giving our white wine that straw yellow color and that delicate but extremely pleasant scent.
