About the Producer
Casa Vinicola Bennati
Casa Vinicola Bennati is an old established house, founded in 1920 by Annibale Bennati, in the area of Cazzano di Tramigna, just a few kilometres from Soave. Annibale was the son of the famous Antonio, or ‘Toni Recioto’ as he was called in honour of the raisin wine of that name.
In this vinicultural heartland, their vineyards are in a prime position and are protected by the surrounding hills. High quality is assured by astute management and hand-picking is still carried out with optimum care.
In the early years the company restricted its activity to producing esteemed local wines, specifically the ageing of Amarone – which are still the flagship wines of the range.
Subsequently, under the winemaking direction of a younger generation of the family, Bennati has extended its interest to international grape varietals and wines from other areas, concentrating on both the character of the region and the quality of varietals.
