List of products by brand Le Battistelle

Soft hills, warm colours and boundless vineyards limited only by the rise of the mighty Alps. This is Veneto, the Italian Region where Soave-wine is one of the undisputed kings. The vine-clad hills of Soave have been recognised as a big part of Italy’s historical and rural heritage, and the vineyards are the largest and oldest specialised area in Veneto. This Veronese D.O.C. was the first Italian wine to be given an award by the National Observatory for the Rural Landscape and Traditional Agricultural Practices and Lore, set up by the Ministry of Agriculture.

With their farm located in the hilly hamlet of Brognoligo, Le Battistelle's wines are from the heart of Soave. After years of selling their grapes to a local wine cooperative, in 2002 the family decided to start making their own traditional, artisanal wine.

They grow 9 hectares of vineyard on their farm, which is situated on volcanic soil, providing a prime location for growing Garganega grapes, an ideal setting and climate which cannot be replicated elsewhere. These unique conditions give their wine an elegant structure with well balanced acidity and minerality.

Soave DOC Classico "Roccolo del Durlo" 2013 (75cl) - Battistelle

£16.50

Buying the case of 6 bottles you will save 10% A remarkable, mineral, elegant wine, well-known for its rarity and award-winning taste.

The most remarkable vineyard is the “Roccolo del Durlo”, where the soil is particularly dark and the rocks are volcanic with a basalt base, like the stone of the walls that surround the area. Roccolo del Durlo, the most important wine in our range is made right here, in this very place, known for its rich heritage of biodiversity, for its wine culture and for the presence of ancient grape varieties. But the setting and age of the vines - some of which are ungrafted survivors from pre-phylloxera times - are the real key to their award-winning taste, producing miniscule yields but grapes of the finest quality. Matured for a year in steel barrels with constant stirring until bottling to stop any “sur lies”, the result is a ‘classical method’ Soave, a wine with strong personality, where you can feel the whole soul and acidity that Garganega expresses, which only improves over time. The wine is an example of great territorial expression, skillfully interpreted by the hand of the producer.
