The story of Inama begins in 1948 when Giuseppe Inama starts working as an oenologist; later, in 1965, he will buy the first vineyard within the denomination of Soave Classico, the Vigneto Foscarino. The commercial and production turning point will take place around the beginning of 1990 when his son Stefano enters the company and begins to produce and market the first bottles of “Sauvignon Fumè”, later also introducing Soave. A few years later the company also began to focus on the production of Carmenere for the production of quality red wine in the Colli Berici DOC. Today the Inama company is one of the most dynamic and growing realities in the area, it can count on historic vineyards both in the Soave DOC and in the Berici Hills; from 2010 to 2017 Stefano’s sons also joined the company bringing new knowledge and enthusiasm.
The grapes come from the company’s vineyards within the Soave DOC denomination. The Sauvignon grapes are harvested by hand when they reach optimal ripeness. After the crushing and soft pressing of the grapes, these are fermented in new barriques for 30% with strong toasting and for 70% in used barriques. This is followed by refinement for a few months in the bottle before being put on the market.
Intense straw yellow color with golden reflections and nuances. On the nose notes of tropical fruit, citrus and aromatic herbs, minerality, notes of vanilla spices, roasting and coffee. On the palate the wine is extremely soft, fat, with good structure and intensity, with a fresh final acidity.
Vulcaia Fumé immediately attracted the attention of trade fairs for the exclusivity of the product, capable of representing the great vocation of the region for the production of aromatic white wines capable of expressing complexity. In fact, given the latter, the wine is perfect as a meditation wine, even if left to rest for a few years in the bottle. In combination it is suitable with white meats, crustaceans, even tasty ones, land-based first courses with truffles or seafood first courses.
