With vineyard holdings almost exclusively on the Monte Foscarino, in the heart of the Soave Classico district, there was little choice but to specialize in the production of quality wines. Giuseppe Inama, who gradually acquired a total of thirty hectares in the most enviable sites, founded the estate in the 1960s. Stefano, Giuseppe’s son, assumed control of winemaking in 1992.
The mineral-rich terra rossa was colonized with Carmenère in the middle of the 19th century by emigrants returning from Aquitaine. Bordeaux was in its heyday and cuttings of Carmenère, a popular grape, were brought back to the Colli Berici. Today Carmenère is already considered a local variety in the hot, dry climate of the Colli Berici. And, along with Cabernet, Merlot, Inama has embarked on realizing the potential of this special place with several red wines from two new properties.
