Inama

The Inama family has been producing wine for over fifty years, now in its third generation with a well-defined project: to produce different wines that have as their sole aim to correspond to our vision of the territory, outside of trendy styles and groups. It is located in Veneto, between the provinces of Verona and Vicenza: two neighboring, but very different territories: the Soave Classico kingdom of ancient white wines and minerals, and the Berici Hills, the wild home of red wines. The Soave Classico area is the exclusively hilly area planted already in Roman times. The vocation, unique for white grapes, is given by the volcanic nature of the soil: a pure lava basalt, the only one with such characteristics in northern Italy. In Roman times it was immediately vined probably with an ancient Grecanicum which later became Garganega in the local sense. From the early sixties Giuseppe Inama began to buy small plots of land on the hills of the Soave Classico. Although Soave was the most famous Italian white wine in the world, few understood how important it would be to have the best land to ensure a future of qualitative continuity for their wine. The founder's intuition was precisely to understand that one day the territory of the "Classico" would be indispensable for producing unrepeatable wines elsewhere. Mineral and floral wines, with balance and elegance to fully correspond to the concept of wine above fashions. Today this property has about 30 hectares. Soave Classico is an area of ​​volcanic nature characterized by the presence of mafic and ultramafic rocks dating back to about 30 million years ago (Upper Paleocene - Lower Oligocene). Monte Foscarino, like the whole area that surrounds it, has a series of coastal variations relating to the volcanism that originated it: it ranges from basaltic lavas, to volcanic tuffs, to the so-called "red horizons" (red clays formed by alteration of volcanic rocks). Located a few kilometers southeast of the Soave hills, in the southern part of the province of Vicenza, the hilly system of the Berici Hills could not be more different from the Soave Classico area. The Berici Hills area has rainfall lower than the Soave Classico area and higher summer temperature profile. From the first tests, we realized that the Berici Hills have an unexplored potential for the production of red wines. In particular, Carmenere, a grape variety present in the area for more than a century, can give life to a wine that we believe has no equal in its kind. It is in this territory, unknown to most from both a geographical and viticultural point of view, that we decided to develop our property for the production of high-quality red wines. Acquisitions, new planting and rental of vineyards have brought the vineyard heritage to over thirty hectares in a few years, including: Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The vines range from over 40 years of age in some parcels to recent recent plants, all grown in Guyot. The area of ​​the Berici Hills was generated by an ancient bradyseism. It is a morphological phenomenon produced by the resulting magmatic pressure that created a lifting of the earth's crust. The territory is marked to the south-west by a long regular ridge of karst origin, covered with red earth (red clayey silt rich in iron oxide).
