The Castello Carboncine vineyard
sits next to the river Sile between the mountains and the Venetian lagoon in the Veneto region. The river Sile was an important link to Venice for transporting
wine and produce to the island city in days gone by.
The soils in this part of Veneto are ideal for cultivating vines: they are extremely rich, consisting of clay, sand, and limestone. These rich soils produce wines
with great intensity and character.
Run by sisters Isabella and Susanna, who choose to disregard the DOC rules and instead make their wines under the more general IGT Marca Trevigiana appellation
allowing them to preserve the grapes and the styles of wines that have been made in the area for centuries.
Their red wines are made using a system designed by their father that agitates the juices and skins in specially designed tanks for between 8 and ten days for a
slow extraction to capture all the nuances and flavours from the grapes.
