The wine region of San Martino della Battaglia is part of the Lombardy wine region. This DOC is located within the area of the same name, between the provinces of Verona and Brescia.

This region has a very particular climate. This is due to the fact that, although the summers are warm, the winters are usually very cold. This means that there is a big difference in temperature between summer and winter. For this reason, the temperature during the year usually ranges between -0.56°C and 29.44°C.

Despite these climatic conditions, which are not very suitable for viticulture, the soils allow producers to obtain wines of surprising quality. This is because the soils are mainly clay-limestone, and have a good mineral content that gives the wines of the region a unique profile.


Most Planted White Grape Varieties: Tocai Friulano

Nestled near the picturesque shores of Lake Garda in Lombardy, Italy, the San Martino della Battaglia DOC region unveils its mastery in crafting exquisite white and Liquoroso wines. Both wines showcase a minimum of 80% Friulano grape, a variety known for its distinct aromatics and balanced acidity.

For the white wines, the Friulano grape takes center stage, offering enticing notes of ripe pear, white peach, and delicate almond undertones. This delightful composition of flavors culminates in a refreshing wine with a crisp and lively palate. The addition of other authorized non-white grape varieties adds complexity and subtle nuances, harmoniously complementing the Friulano's character. The result is an elegant and versatile white wine, perfect for pairing with light seafood dishes, fresh salads, or simply sipping on warm afternoons.

In addition to the captivating white wines, the region's Liquoroso wines captivate with their rich and luscious character. Made from a similar grape composition, liqueur wines undergo a unique fortification process that allows them to develop deep, concentrated flavors. The Friulano grape contributes its inherent fruity notes, while other authorized non-white grape varieties infuse the wine with added depth and complexity. The Liquoroso wines reveal a symphony of flavors, with rich caramel, dried fruit and toasted almond nuances. With a velvety mouthfeel and a hint of sweetness, these wines are a delicious pairing for desserts or a luxurious after-dinner drink.
