Maculan, Family Winemakers in Breganze For three generations the Maculan family has been selecting and vinifying the best grapes in Breganze, an enchanting village, set like a small jewel at the foot of the Alps in the Veneto region. The high plains of Asiago offer natural protection and create an extremely mild climate that favors the cultivation of vines and olives. It isn't a coincidence that in the 500s, the Venetian nobility already preferred to spend their summers in this area, sojourning in the splendid villas perfectly designed by the great architect, Andrea Palladio. The Maculan Farm consists of 15 hectares of estate owned vineyards in the commune of Breganze. 24 additional hectares are leased within the DOC zone of Breganze. Maculan also works with other growers, managing production of up to 50 hectares in the DOC zone of Breganze. Location of the vineyard: Breganze hills Exposure and type of land: volcanic and tuffaceous hills Grape variety: 100% Vespaiola Vine layout: painstaking manual selections of stalks with undeveloped Botritis cinerea (noble rot) Aging: for two years in new barriques, in bottles for one year Residual sugar: 210 g/l Color: brillant deep antique gold On the nose: great, intense and spicy bouquet of honey, dry fruit, raisins and minerally flint In the mouth: sweet yet elegant, this wine is fullbodied, elegant and sumptuous.
