Casetta, or Foja Tonda, or Lambrusco with round leaf
“Casetta” wine has been present in Vallagarina, both in the Trentino area and in the Verona area, since immemorial time.
Historical places for its growth are the calcareous cones of Cipriana Valley and San Valentino Valley, between the villages of Marani and Santa Margherita, in the municipality of Ala. Nowadays this autochthonous variety is cultivated on small plots all along Vallagarina area.
That territory is also known as “Maranela” like the nickname of a family from Marani, who cultivated that vine from the taming of wild grapevine called “vitis vinifera silvestris”.
This wine, DOC certificated, has a strong ruby-red colour and it is at its best with an appropriate aging, when the green notes become more spicy and complex making the wine much more pleasant.
