Villa Girardi is a typical Venetian Villa designed by Luigi Trezza back in the 1700s. The Villa is located in a large park with old trees surrounded by 30 hectares of vineyards with rich clay-limestone soil and a mild climate creating conditions conducive to the cultivation of indigenous Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, and Molinara grape varieties. The family business was formally founded in 1986 under the auspices of Franco Tommasi. The Villa Girardi Estate lies in the valley that connects San Pietro in Cariano with Fumane in the heart of the Valpolicella Region northwest of Verona. A lovely white showcasing emergent banana & elderflower aromas at the forefront. On the palate, green apple & banana notes pervade interwoven with trace nuances of roasted almonds and a tangy acidity. This is a simple yet well made wine that would make for a great aperitif.
Dry , harmonious and complete, with bottom of golden apples and roasted almonds.
