Notes from the Importer: " Riva Arsiglia" is made from a single hectare of Garganega planted in 1935 from ungrafted vines. It is aged for approximately 10 months on its lees in tank giving it a beautiful creaminess. This is Stefano’s take on a “classic white wine” from the region of Gambellara with potential to age

Giovanni Menti was founded at the end of the 19th century in Gambellara by Stefano’s great-grandfather who made wine for his own personal consumption in this small town nestled between Vicenza and Verona in the Veneto. Generation upon generation, Menti concentrated its cultivation in the Garganega varietal which is renowned for its versatility. Stefano joined the company following his father in 2001. He introduced organic farming in 2004 and by 2011 the company was certified biodynamic, all based on Stefano’s steadfast desire to take better care of the land and improve quality. Though the majority of the winery’s 7.5 hectares remain planted to Gargagena, Stefano has also added Durella in his tenure, another native varietal of the Lessini mountains.

Tasting notes of  peaches, green melon and pear, green tea, whole grain mustard, and some salty and brininess on the finish
