Monteforche, Light Orange, 2022

Vigneto Carantina

This is a light orange wine made from Garganega grapes grown on vines up to thirty years old, planted over the region’s volcanic soils. A rich shade of gold, this is a great expression of the land, with stone fruits, smoke and minerals combining to beautiful effect.

Alfonso Soranzo makes wines from vineyards surrounding his home and cantina in the tiny hamlet of Zovon di Vò in the beautiful hills of the Colli Euganei. Like many great vineyards in the Veneto, this was previously an area of significant volcanic activity and the fossilised soils that remain are perfect for growing its native grapes. The wines are fermented on the skins with wild yeasts and rest on their lees in concrete vats until bottling. It is a humble, straightforward approach that yields wines that do not scream and shout, but rather are honest, nourishing and delicious.
