Casetta, or Foja Tonda, or Lambrusco a foglia tonda
Casetta has been present in Vallagarina, both in the Trentino area and in the Verona area, since immemorial time.
The most widespread historical areas have always been the Cipriana Valley and San Valentino Valley, between the towns of Marani and Santa Margherita of Ala. Today this variety is cultivated on small surfaces along the Vallagarina.
Known in the area also as “Maranela”, from the nickname of the family “Marani” who had it as a crop. The wine is generated by the domestication of the wild vine, the vitis vinifera silvestris.
The wine, which is part of the DOC Terra dei Forti, has an intense ruby red color and has fruity notes but it is a bit spicy and complex aromas that make it particularly pleasant when there is an appropriate aging.
