NOTES Produced from the vinification of Tuchì grapes, San Martino della Battaglia was a DOC at very high risk of extinction and is still today one of the smallest Designations of Origin in Italy.Campo del Soglio was born in 1988 with the intention of saving this wine from oblivion by producing it at the highest possible quality level, expressing the best of its potential. In 2008 the European Community banned the use of the name Tocai reserving it for Tokaji produced in Hungary. For this reason we have therefore been deprived of giving a name to the grape from which a wine that has deep roots is produced, in a DOC from the same age as Lugana.This is the reason why, from the 2007 vintage, a question mark dominates the back label. From a production point of view, the vineyard must be kept at a very low yield, almost half of that allowed by the disciplinary. The grapes are harvested by hand, carried in boxes to the cellar where they are soft pressed; the must is immediately lowered in temperature and protected in steel tanks. It is bottled between spring and summer, after a couple of months of aging it can be marketed.
