Project “resident/indigenous yeasts”

The concept of sustainable development has always been a central focus for Albino Armani’s winery. To give you a brief example, during the year 2015 we experimented the technique of sexual confusion in which we tried to control pest infestation using basically insect pheromones. Today this experiment turned out to be a standardized treatment in helping us protect our vineyards in Valdadige. In parallel with this and right after the end of harvest 2016, Albino Armani winery started an important

Great wine does not exist: An interview with Albino Armani

Selezione_109

“Great wine? To me it does not exist. In fact, what do you mean by this word, ‘great?’ Famous, expensive, noble…? To me, even a humble Vernatsch with a daily meal can be ‘great’ if it is representative of its region. That’s why I’m not interested in tasting a ‘great wine’ but would rather drink a typical wine that speaks the language of its country.” Albino Armani is a renowned Italian wine producer … READ MORE ON PALATE PRESS

Green battle

The warm season is on its way and you can already see the first buds of early ripening varieties among the vineyards. The time has also come this year to hang up the sprinklings to fight the moth, according to the consolidated rules of “mating distraction”. Starting from 2015, we have decided to extend this sustainable technique to about 70 hectares of our property and now more than half of our vineyards are protected against this parasite. The sprinkling of

About Us

About Us

Albino Armani winery is a working tradition that goes back in time. The first evidence of vineyard ownership was in 1607. Today, Albino Armani vineyards are located in three different Italian regions (Veneto, Trentino and Friuli) and they cover about 230 acres of land. In 1962, the municipality of Dolcè (Veneto) became the winery’s home base; it is located in the southern part of the Adige Valley, a glacial valley characterized by a strong identity. We have a strong bond with the territory where our grapevines grow. To preserve them, each day is a challenge for us and the risk of losing our produce is the guiding spirit that gives us the strength to keep doing our job. Our wines are the exact representation of where the grapes come from and in the same time, they describe their own territory of origin. For example, our white wines have fresh bouquet notes of white flowers, result of temperature fluctuations and constant ventilation typical of the Trentino land; and our red wines, on the other hand are original in character, fresh yet complex, result of the high altitude of the Valpolicella hills.
