Bruno Verdi Description

The Verdi family can trace its viticultural origins back seven generations to the 18th century when Antonio Verdi came from Parma to settle in the Oltrepò Pavese. The original farm was founded on wheat and corn production; mulberries were grown for the leaves, used for feeding silkworms; and, of course, grapevines were planted. Luigi, of the third generation of Verdis, was the first to transform the family's grapes into wine. However, it was Bruno who, after World War II, was the first to bottle his wine at the estate. He put his own name on the label and Bruno Verdi wines were born. His son, Paolo, now carries on the tradition skillfully bringing the estate into the modern era. Verdi's vineyards are spread over four separate plots of land on the hillsides surrounding the village of Canneto Pavese. Cavariola is the winery's greatest cru, on a west facing slope with well-drained sandy clay soil. Croatina, Uva Rara, Barbera and Ughetta di Canetto are grown here and go into the Oltrepo Rosso Riserva "Cavariola". Only Barbera is grown in the sandier soils of the Campo del Marrone vineyard, the closest to the winery. Vigna Costa and Paradiso are located farther from the winery where the soils contain more limestone. This terroir is particularly suited to white grapes and is the source of the Riesling Renano. There is also some Croatina, Uva Rara and Barbera.

Wine Notes: The grapes are harvested by hand from vineyards in both Canneto Pavese and the adjacent commune of Castana. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel at a low temperature and the wine is bottled at the end of winter to capture its freshness. Verdi’s Pinot Grigio is a fine, elegant wine of great balance and relatively low alcohol (11.5%).
