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

Friuli in my eyes

cc

by Caterina Cipriani – It was about one year ago, at the end of the harvest 2012, when I reached Sequals. This small village, just renowned for being the native place of the famous boxer Primo Carnera, perfectly matches the idea I had in my mind when I was at school: “ the universe in miniature”*. In Winter, while I was attending the third year of college studying  Viticulture and Oenology in Udine, I started exploring this territory together with my faithful

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.
