About the Wine Maker

During the 1960s Giuseppe Inama, the estate’s founder, began purchasing small plots of vineyards in the heart of the Soave Classico, beginning with Foscarino in 1965. His idea was to assemble the best vineyards of old-vine Garganega, and fashion from them wines capable of restoring Soave’s reputation. Foscarino is indeed today one of the most important sites in Soave, grown on purely volcanic basaltic lava soils, and both the alcoholic and malo-lactic fermentation occur in used, small French oak. Today the estate is managed by Giuseppe’s son Stefano, with his three sons Matteo, Luca and Alessio. From the 2016 vintage, Inama have released a new cru Soave Classico, Vigneti Carbonare, also planted on basaltic lava, but in contrast fermented exclusively in stainless steel.

Over the past 20 years, Stefano, and latterly with his sons, have created a 30 hectare property in Colli Berici, located just a few kilometers South-East of the Soave hills. Despite its proximity, this area couldn’t be more different with half the annual rainfall and higher average temperatures than the Soave Classico area. From the very early trials, Stefano understood the unexploited potential of the area for red wines, and in particular Carmenère, which had already been present for more than a century. Inama successfully blend the Carmenère with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon to create both young drinking reds such as the Carmenere Più as well as their age-worthy flagships Bradisismo and Oratorio di San Lorenzo.
