Grapes form a palette of colours that the wine-maker uses to create works of art with personal artistry
Albino Piona winery will participate to international fairs
Pro Wine from15th to 17th March at Hall 15 Stand D 41 - Vinitaly from 22nd to 25th March at Hall 4 Stand C6
It's a poetic image by Albino Piona and his family, that has been growing grapevines and has been producing white, red and rosé wines in the heart of Custoza area since before the Unity of Italy.
Albino, “wine craftsman” as he defines himself, follows personally his “paintings”, that are his wines, from the first sprouts on the grapevines, to the harvest, to the wine-making and to the final bottling. He follows this all with great respect towards the tradition, but at the same time taking constantly care of the new technologies and possible improvements by applying modern techniques.
The show room is a sort of “Naturarte” space for thepublic. The bottles are in view, the barrels, vine shoots and grapes are used as nature design, between the cultural ferments of works of art, theatre, music that re-echo in this space. Passion gets mixed up with passion, Bacchus and the Muses together infuse high temperature to the show room Naturarte.

ITALIAN WINES 2015
It’s not easy to give character, depth and class to wines that have in lightness and fragrance their characteristics, but the path taken some years ago by Piona family is certainly the right one. The strenght lies in nearly 80 hectares of property, located on the moranic hills in the south of Garda Lake. The cultivated grapes are dedicated to the historic names of Custoza and Bardolino and are then transformed inside the functional cellar, located in Località Casa Palazzina di Prabiano. The qualitative growth of Piona production does not stop, especially for those wines like Custoza and Bardolino that represent the territory and are interpreted with elegance and tradition. Custoza ’13 is an explosion of white ripe fruit, with a nice saffron note that introduces a sapid and strenght palate. Very good also Bardolino ’13.
CUSTOZA ’13: 2 red glasses (very good/excellent wines, that reached the final tastings)
BARDOLINO ’13:2 black glasses (very good/excellent wines in their category)
CAMPO MASSIMO CORVINA 2011: 2 black glasses (very good/excellent wines in their category)
BARDOLINO CHIARETTO ’13: 1 glass (very good wines in their category)
ESTRO DI PIONA ROSE’: 1 glass (very good wines in their category)
VERDE PIONA: 1 glass (very good wines in their category)
