As far back as ancient times, the wines of Verona were highly sought after. Over 2000 years ago, the Romans brought Garganega for white and Corvina for red. Not just conquerors, the Romans were also great gourmands and party animals.

Giuseppe Inama came to the village of Soave to revive this great tradition of making the most famous white wine in Italy. He started to buy parts of the Monte Foscarino vineyard which he knew were the best vines in Soave. They have been bottling this single vineyard wine since 1992. The 2019 Inama Soave Classico Vigneto di Foscarino is the current release, a fresh, mineral, and floral wine that is elegant, balanced, and deep.

Monte Foscarino is a dormant volcano with basaltic lava soils. This allows the Inamas to make wines from a quality ecosystem and a unique terroir.

Speaking of which, the Allegrini family has been doing the same with high-quality reds. The 2018 Allegrini La Grola Veronese is the current release of this single vineyard. The wine is 90% Corvino, a variety that was also brought to Verona by the Romans. Giovanni bought the vineyard in 1979. Today Marilisa runs the estate and continues to make this intense, elegant wine with a distinctive personality.
