Garganuda is the blend of two distinct words: Garganega, a native grape from Veneto Region, and nuda, which means "naked", in Italian language.Andrea Fiorini Carbognin does not come from a family of winemakers, however his grandfather used to make wine for the consumption of his family. Therefore Andrea has always been connected to an artisanal, authentic idea of wine and, during his path of wine drinker (and wine lover) he started to catch some interference. All those tasted wines seemed to lack their own identity. Andrea was able to find grapes again when he first tasted a biodynamic wine; he felt so impressed that he understood his mission: to restore the real pleasure of his local wine so he did. He was the first to obtain DOCon his natural, biodynamic Soave wine.
The geographical area is Monteforte d'Alpone (VR), Veneto. The 60 years old vineyard is 100% Garganega grapes. The soil is volcanic (basalt). Harvested manually in small, wooden crates. Grapes are de-stemmed, pressed and, spontaneously fermented with ambient yeast, into concrete vessels where the wine also continues its maturation for 18 months, in contact with its lees to gain complexity and a generous texture. The wine is not clarified and/or stabilized in any way and it is bottled with a small sulphites addition. The production is about 20000 bottles/year.
