In Vineyard

100% Malbech grapes grown from our own vineyards in Pramaggiore. The vineyard is situated 25 – 40 metres above sea level with medium texture and clayey soil. Sylvoz is the growing method used.

In Cellar

Red vinification of Malbech grapes. Fermentation takes place on the skins in steel vats for 8-10 days at a controlled temperature of 24-26 °C, on carefully selected yeasts. After racking off the wine is held in steel vats until bottling.

In Tasting

Bright red in colour. Vinous scent with lovely hints of mixed berries. The flavour is full and rich in personality, adding freshness and tone to the pleasant aromatic end.

Pairings

The young wine is delightful with salami and poultry; as it ages it is delicious with roast meat.

MalbecIGTAi GalliVeneto
Malbec – is a purple grape variety used in making red wine. The grapes tend to have an inky dark color and robust tannins, and are known as one of the six grapes allowed in the blend of red Bordeaux wine.
IGT – Indicazione geografica tipica is the third of four classifications of wine recognized by the government of Italy.
Ai Galli – The farm Azienda Agricola Ai Galli was built about the seventies and now is set in nearly 50 hectares of vineyards, which are all situated in the D.O.C. (controlled designation of origin) Lison-Pramaggiore production area. The production of a wide range of good wines has been more and more appreciated by wine connoisseurs. The awards won in the last years are not final achievements for the company, but a confirmation that the undertaken way is the right one.
Veneto – is a substantial and increasingly important wine region in the northeastern corner of Italy. Veneto is slightly smaller than Italy’s other main wine-producing regions – Piedmont, Tuscany, Lombardy, Puglia and Sicily – yet it generates more wine than any of them. Today more than 25 percent of the region’s wine is made and sold under DOC/DOCG titles.
