Project Description

Le Morette

Veneto

Wines from one of the most dynamic areas of production of Lugana DOC

Founded over 60 years ago by Gino Zenato, Le Morette is a 30 hectare family-owned and operated farm. Now under the guidance of Gino’s son Valerio, with support from his sons, Fabio and Paolo, they share an incredible passion for the territory and elegance of its wines.

Divided into three estates, two in San Benedetto di Lugana and one near the Sirmione Palace – both areas are located in the thin belt that divides the southern bank of Lake Garda and the Frassino Lake. The soil of this area originates from the Garda glacier and is characterised by a compact, chalky and marly clay composition. With high salinity levels due to mineral sedimentations, as well as the mild microclimate as a result of the lake, the area is known for producing the best territorial Cru wines, showing elegant structure and greater minerality.

The company was born as a farm for vineshoot production, intended for viticulture. Gino from the start backed up this activity with winemaking self production, as a direct test bed for his farming activity.

In 1981 his son Valerio took over the farm management, and he enriched the production with high value wines, at once characterised by a strong personality. He therefore achieved his first awards and definitely launched the company towards quality winemaking production. His wines are distinguished by their marked minerality and structure, which are typical characteristics of this territory and they are interpreted in an elegant and refined style.
