RESPECT FOR NATURE IS THE CORNERSTONE OF MAELI’S WINES
Respect and regard for an ancient, originally volcanic land, where typically Mediterranean lush vegetation made up of plants and fruit trees lives side by side with centuries old traditional plants such as olive trees and grapevines. This is the natural world in the Euganean Hills National Park where Maeli’s wines have taken root.
The vineyards are located on two faces of the Euganean Hills.
To the north at Luvigliano di Torreglia in the Terre Bianche del Pirio, the Yellow Muscat vines are deeply rooted in earth made up of marl flakes and chalk rock interspersed with trachyte and take full advantage of the excellent exposition to the warmth and light of the sun for the greatest part of the day whilst being sheltered from the cold north winds by Monte Pirio.
Further south at Baone in Monte Gemola, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere vines grow side by side with old autochthonous grape varieties such as Corbina Nera, Corbinella, Pattaresca, Marzemina Bianca, Vernazzola and Malvasia Istriana. Here the iron rich red earth abounding with minerals and marine fossils and the typically Mediterranean climate give rise to well-structured elegant wines that age well over time.
