• Family business owned and founded by the winemaker Giovanna. • Located in one of the best growing zones just south of Lake Garda ideal for crafting wines with rich mineral character. • 19 hectares (47 acres), mostly cultivated with traditional Garganega and Valpolicella blend grapes, Corvina and Rondinella. • The two pillars of Giovanna Tantini philosophy are: respect for the territory and valorization of the indigenous grape varieties. • Fresh and lively wines, alternative grape varieties ideal for by-the glass consumption. • A benchmark in the Bardolino Chiaretto DOCG appellation. • Soil composition: glacial and alluvial deposits, calcareous. • Climate: Lake Garda, Italy’s biggest body of water, regulates diurnal temperature shifts, keeping the vines warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
In 2000, when Giovanna Tantini abandoned her law career and dove headfirst into the world of wine, she was one of just a handful of women winemakers in Bardolino. Today, she is considered one of the appellation’s pioneers thanks to her devotion to making high-quality, terroir-driven wines.
