LE SALETTE

Let us tell you a beautiful story that took place in the hills of a tiny village called Fumane. The story is of grace received: it was the year 1860 and the local farmers decided to build the sanctuary of Le Salette as a votive offering to the Madonna when she freed their vineyards from the scourge of the vine-pest. The sanctuary is a church which overlooks the village that it protects. It appears to be hanging on the rocks, and is surrounded by hills and vineyards. One of the vineyards extends to just below the sacred building and has always been the property of a "historical" winemaking family of Valpolicella: the Scamperle family, who are the proprietors of a winemaking enterprise with the same name as the sanctuary, Le Salette.
Theirs too is a beautiful story, which tells about decades of faithful farming and love for the land, and, above all, a passion for making wine. Indeed, for generations the Scamperle family has dedicated itself to growing grapes, and, over the years, to gradually increasing the number of grapevines. Today the family owns twenty cultivated hectares, situated here and there among the most renowned places of the Valpolicella Classica Doc area: Fumane Cà Carnocchio, I Progni and Santuario, Sant'Ambrogio Conca D'Oro and in San Floriano Monte Masua. The type of grapes produced are the most classical types of the zone: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Oseleta, a small quantity of Molinara, and Croatina.
