Great wines from a small winery

The winery Solenghi Gaetano is a small family winery. The vineyards, in the hills on the west side of the valley Tidone with good sun exposure and marly-clayey soils are carefully taken care with natural methods meaning the quality of the grapes is high.
"Quality is our philosophy. Quality means respect for the land, the vineyard, the environment and, most importantly, respect for the clients by providing wines with unique flavor though respectful of the tradition of Piacenza. "

Gaetano Solenghi produces about 15,000 bottles a year, which markets directly. The pride of this small winery wines are Gutturnio and Barbera Riserva, which are offered for sale after many years of aging, and only after the wines have reached the right degree of ripeness. That's also the case for the Malvasia Passito dell'Emilia Danza del Sole a wine produced with completely natural methods.

It 's really a pleasure to meet Gaetano and his family. His passion for wine has ancient roots, that led him to take up the land of the family for years in a state of neglect, rearranging the winery, the vineyards and by planting new ones. The estate is really small and Gaetano Solenghi personally takes care of every detail in the vineyard and in the cellar. The wines produced here, represents the details of the true tradition of the Colli Piacentini's flavors and fragrances, softened only by long aging.

The results of this way of working are wonderful wines fully representing the territory and the local traditions, and also very suitable to last a long time. This is especially true for the Barbera, which is put on the market only when is deemed ready. True wine, grapes and nothing else.
