Azienda Agricola Coffele
The Coffele Estate today comprises 25 hectares (75 campi veronesi or Verona fields, an ancient unit of measurement) under vines in Castelcerino, a single block mainly devoted to the Garganega grape, but also featuring Trebbiano di Soave and Chardonnay, in addition to the red grapes of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyards, all exposed to the sun and breezes, are surrounded by centennial olive trees, cherries and the woods.
All the property, totally owned by the family, is cultivated organically and it is managed with care and attention by Alberto Coffele himself, director of production. Giuseppe Coffele, however, is dedicated to the protection and conservation of the land since, as early as the 1970s, he was the first private vine grower of the Soave Classico zone to believe in the Castelcerino crus.
The wine opens up with a rich array of aromas - apple, pear, passion fruit, pink grapefruit, chamomile and mint and develops distinct peppery notes within a few minutes in the glass. The wine is dry, with an acidity that sneaks up on you, leaving your palate clean after a long, mouthfilling finish.
Excellent with seafood and delicate white meats.
