Origin, style and value & sustainability

After the intercontinental journey, this was an alternative trip  at the “micro level”,  for the discovery of the genetic traits that make the Garganega, the mother grape of Soave, unique. The meeting, held on Tuesday, April 8th at 9:30 am, has seen the participation of Mario Pezzotti, professor of the Department of Biotechnology at the University of Verona, who spoke to the molecular characterization of Garganega, and Paola Riscazzi of Sprim who discussed the sustainable label of Cantina di Monteforte. The green label uses the scientifically recognized methodology of LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) to calculate the environmental impact of all phases of the production chain from the installation of the Vineyard, to the cellar work, to the production of bottles, all the way to the movement of goods to the final consumer. A sort of “curriculum” of the producer virtuosity all summed up on a label, which includes three classes of monitoring: air, water, soil.
