Angarano Bianco of Villa Angarano is the fruit of the blending of vespaiola grape, a historical grape variety of Bassano del Grappa’s winemaking tradition. The plots dedicated to this wine grape growing are located east of the Villa at about 118 mamsl with excellent sun exposure and flat position. The diurnal temperature range favours the trasnfer of the vespaiola’s unique varietal features from the grape to the wine. The soil composition is medium-textured with alluvial deposits. Over the years, the winery has reproduced and transplanted the old biotypes of the local grape varieties in order to preserve their characteristics and uniqueness. During all the phenological steps, the vineyard development is always supervised to obtain a limited but high-quality production until mid-September, when the grapes are hand-picked. The winemaking is in steel tanks and the alcoholic fermentation lasts 2 months approximately at a controlled temperature. Once winemaking is completed, the wine fines in the presence of lees in steel for over 4 months. It follows the wine racking and further cellar treatments.
