Wine Insight :
Nevio Scala! The man who achieved great success on the football field, first as a player and then, above all, as a coach, with the great Parma of the 1990s, winning at home and achieving memorable victories in Europe and around the world as well. After many balls kicked and numerous trophies raised, the whistle finally blew at the end of the first half of Nevio Scala's career, allowing him to enjoy a second half away from the synthetic pitches and more in touch with nature.
Nevio Scala began to live in the Lozzo Atestino countryside, at the foot of the Euganean Hills. He revived his family winery, right there in the land where he grew up and was educated, focusing on organic farming and the methodical enhancement of the surrounding environment. The agricultural techniques do not involve any use of synthetic products, the soil is naturally enriched with nutrients thanks to green manure and the cultivation of legumes and grasses, and the reforestation of the surrounding areas continues to flourish. The volcanic and alluvial soils are home to typical local grapes such as Garganega, Malvasia Istriana, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, as well as the older, historic Turchetta, Recantina, Pataresca and Corbinona, which were recovered and replanted in 2018. Biodiversity is very much a part of Nevio Scala's lifestyle, with part of the land dedicated to the 200 olive trees that have been in production for five years at an altitude of 150 metres.
Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Black fruit, herbs and that great Italian savoury lean. Beautifully balanced, beautifully done.
