About the Wine
Casarotto Winery is at the foot of the Lessini Mountains, bordering the Soave area. This region is characterized by its outstanding terroir, made up of volcanic soils, composed of tuffs and basalts rich in iron, magnesium, and other micro-elements. This volcanic soil creates wines with complexity, and many producers believe the volcanic soil is responsible for the cinnamon and almond-like notes in these wines.
Casarotto’s wines are a must-try, since we first tasted them, we immediately fell in love and decided to directly import them.
Since its inception, in 1945, this estate has been owned and operated by the Casarotto family and is now run by the third generation. Celeste is a very hands-on winemaker who’s born and raised among vines and wines. He had to take the leadership of the winery at the very young age of 15 years old, and ever since, he’s learn every aspect of the game, from the vineyard to the cellar. Celeste is teaching all his expertise to his daughter Francesca, who’s managing the cellar, and his son Luigi, who’s in charge of the vineyard. The 37-acre vineyard is planted with 35 to 40-year-old native grapes like Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave.
Casarotto produces remarkable wines of extremely high quality, wines that are adored by some of the world’s most respected wine critics. But, it's not only the wines that shine in Casarotto, it's also the sublime landscape, location, and building itself (a must-visit if you're around this area sometime.) WineTourism.com recently featured Casarotto among “the best wineries in Soave” and said that “the winery area has been an eye-catcher as the scenic views of nature surrounding it.”
Aging: Stainless steel tanks
Tasting Notes: 100% Chardonnay. White still wine with a golden yellow color and a fruity and delicate perfume. Beautiful aromas of pineapple and tropical fruit. It has an intense and rich body. This is a fresh, young, beautiful, vibrant, crisp, and modern little white wine. We love to pair it with oysters, simple appetizers like crostinis, seafood, sun, and pool.
