Founded back in 1925 by Amadio Fasoli, it was then a fruit and vegetable farm, making some wine for consumption in Veronese bars. The business is currently headed by Matteo Fasoli, the third generation to hold the reins here. Since 2006 the family have also been practising Demeter-certified biodynamics. They continue to apply know-how passed down over generations alongside modern techniques to ensure they produce consistently high quality wines. Today they use this biodynamic approach as it restores the balance that already exists in nature. Fasoli Gino turned to organic viticulture in 1980 and since 1984 all of their land has been farmed organically. Currently the estate is cultivating 14 hectares of vineyards divided into seven parts: The type of land varies from one vineyard to the other, which has helped determine which varieties should be planted. In the clay soil there are 30–40 year old Garganega vines, traditionally used for Soave wine. The meticulous viticultural practices include: grass grown under the vines; manuring with bovine dung; balanced pruning to guarantee a low yield; parasite control using natural products and predators, and hand picking done at different times to select grapes at their optimum ripening point. The vinification is carried out with the use of modern technology whilst respecting the criteria of organic production.
A delightful Soave produced from 100% Garganega grape, the pale straw lemon in colour with aromas of apple and lemon with notes of almond and camomile. the palate is crisp, dry and refined with flavours of apple and lime and a lovely balanced acidity leading to a wonderfully clean fresh finish.
