Run by Luca Degani since 1995, the Cantina Valpantena is now one of Italy’s best co-operatives, with 700 hectares of vineyard that produce excellent quality fruit. Matt Thomson makes some of the Alpha Zeta wines here and has worked closely with them since 1999.
This wine is light lemon in colour with a youthful rim. Perfumed with a lovely fresh white flower, almond and citrus nose giving way to ripe but crisp melon and a touch of white peach on the palate. The finish is lifted and aromatic.
