Wine tasting advice

Dark straw yellow.
Fresh, dry, mineral.
Floral aromas (jasmine, elderberry) and fruity aromas (apple, quince apple, apricot). Very expressive flinty minerality.

Vinification

The grapes are hardly ever pressed. It is actually the flower of the must that is extracted. Fermentation on native yeasts, with stainless steel tank foot without temperature control. No filtration or clarification. Long ageing: 12 months in cement tanks and 8 months in bottles. Sulphites: less than 30mg/litre.

Terroir

The Garganega vineyards of Quercia Laboriosa, planted in the 70s following the system of Veronese pergolas, are located at 200 meters altitude with south/east exposure, in the town of Arcandola, in Marcellise, in the commune of San Martino di Buon Albergo. The white limestone soil (the 'pietra di Lessinia', named after the surrounding regional park) gives the wine its extreme minerality and freshness.

Le vigneron

With a degree in accounting, Laura Albertini never gave up: she would become a winegrower. The adventure began in 2007 with the vinification, in a small garage, of grapes cultivated by her father. Then, gradually, it moved from renting vineyards to buying small parcels and growing its project.

As for his spouse, Cristiano Saletti, he initially saw his role not exceeding that of assisting his spouse. But Laura’s far too early death decided otherwise. And it was the vines and nature that supported him in this ordeal, making the dream come true.

The name of the Terre di Pietra estate refers to its soil, made up of layers of very hard stone and, by extension, to the attachment of its founders to their land. In addition to following the precepts of organic viticulture, the estate has been a member of VinNatur since 2017, the most important Italian association of natural wine producers.

Nowadays, Laura’s daughters and Cristiano are already walking in their steps. The youngest, Anna, is in fact the author of the wine labels.
