Massimago - Duchessa Allegra, Garganega (2021)
Yellowish straw colour with pale green reflections. On the nose there is a tangy citrus aroma reminiscent of grapefruit and green apples, then the palate is crunchy clean, with glycerine complexity and fruity notes which combine harmoniously to achieve perfect balance.
Nestled in the most hidden part of Valpolicella, the valley of Mezzane (Eastern Valpolicella), Massimago has a long history in the region. Owned by the Cracco family (Camilla’s mother’s family) since 1883, it was renovated and relaunched as Winery and Wine Relais, in 2003 by Camilla Rossi Chauvenet. When Camilla took the reins, Massimago converted to organics within a couple years and has been certified as such since 2014 with biodynamic practices as well.
