New Valtènesi DOC and Groppelloposted on 9 August 2014
1 September marks the official release of our first vintage of Valtènesi DOC, 2013. In point of fact, Cantrina’s Valtènesi is not a new product, since it simply takes the place of Groppello, with the same 100% of that variety and the same label design (in which the term Valtènesi replaces the name of the Groppello grape), but the change gives increased importance to the name of the growing area in which we live and produce our wines. It will just take a bit of time to get used to the new name and to communicate the message about the growing area, before that of the grape variety. Turning to the specifics of the wine, our Valtenèsi 2013 spent an additional 3 months in the vat before bottling, compared to previous vintages of Groppello, allowing us to produce a more complete and distinctive wine, one that will stand out better for its elegance and refined spice.
