about this subregion

Tucked away in the heart of Italy's wine country lies the Strevi sub-region, an environmental gem celebrated for its pristine landscapes and vine-clad terrains. The rolling hills, bathed in the warm glow of the Mediterranean sun, are characterized by verdant vineyards that seem to stretch into the horizon, offering a picturesque panorama that has inspired poets and painters for centuries.

The climate of Strevi is quintessential for viticulture; a harmonious blend of warm days and cool nights, influenced by both maritime and continental breezes, ensures grapes mature with a balance of sugars, acids, and flavors. The soils here are rich and varied, ranging from sandy loams to calcareous clay, providing a diverse terroir that offers an array of unique expressions to the wines produced here.

However, the true crown jewel of the Strevi sub-region is its most planted white grape variety: Moscato. Known worldwide for its fragrant aroma reminiscent of fresh grapes, oranges, and a hint of musk, Moscato from Strevi is a testament to the region's exceptional environment and viticultural prowess. The wines produced from this grape are often light, effervescent, and sweet, with vibrant notes of peach, honeysuckle, and citrus zest, making them perfect accompaniments to desserts or enjoyed on their own on a warm afternoon.

Beyond the vineyards, Strevi boasts a robust ecosystem, teeming with local flora and fauna. The hedgerows that often border the vineyards are abuzz with pollinators, while the woodlands and meadows nearby are home to a myriad of birds, mammals, and insects. These natural habitats not only underscore the beauty of the region but also play a pivotal role in maintaining the health and biodiversity of the local ecosystem.

In essence, the Strevi sub-region is more than just a wine-producing area. It's a testament to the harmony between nature and agriculture, where the gentle embrace of the environment nurtures the vines, resulting in wines that truly capture the spirit and essence of the land.
