The estate was founded by Alberto Malesani, famous in Italy as a former manager of both Fiorentina and Parma. While at Parma, he won the UEFA cup in 1999. His passion and intelligence is now channelled into this estate, where he is helped by consultant winemaker Lorenzo Caramazza, formerly of Cantina Valpantena.
La Giuva wines are the expression of the territory of Trezzolano, a small village in the upper Squaranto valley, characterised by a hilly, calcareous terrain at an altitude of roughly 350 meters above sea level.The area is cooled by rolling winds.
The name La Giuva is an acronym of his daughters’ initials, Giulia and Valentina, who are heavily involved in the business. The Valpolicella Superiore has a unique freshness combined with the typical characteristics of the drying of grapes. Aromatic, it has hints of spice and a subtle sweet scent on the nose, with great balance and concentration and a distinct liquorice impression on the long finish.Additional informations (PDF)
