Inama is a family-owned winery that has been making wine for more than fifty years. Now being led by third-generation family members, the winery has a single vision: to make wines that are true reflections of the territory and not dictated by style or trend.
Soave Classico is an exclusively hilly area east of Verona that was originally formed by volcanic activity and was already a known wine growing area in the time of the Romans. An ancient variety, Grecanicum, was widely planted and has evolved over time into the local grape, Garganega. In this impressive landscape, Inama mainly produces terroir-driven volcanic wines with their flagship labels being Vulcaia and Vulcaia Fumé.
One of their most successful and innovative wines is the Sauvignon Vulcaia Fumé, a ‘volcanic’ Sauvignon that is completely transformed by the terroir of the volcanic soils, entirely overpowering the traditional characteristics of the variety.
In the Colli Berici area, located in the southern region of the Vicenza province, the magma never truly erupted but did elevate the crust of the earth, creating gentle, undulating hills with calcareous marine and red clay soils. Amongst the rural backdrop of forests and Venetian villas, Inama mainly grows a long-lost – and often confused for Cabernet Franc – local vine, Carmenere. In addition to giving new life to this vine, which has recently been recognized as the Colli Berici Carmenere DOC appellation, the winery is elevating it with its famous Oratorio di San Lorenzo Carmenere Riserva. Before they pioneered the cultivation of Carmenere, other renown Bordeaux varieties dominated the vineyards of Colli Berici for two centuries. Inama leverages the strength of Cabernet Sauvignon in this terroir ti make their historic Bradisismo lable (70% Cabernet, 30% Carmenere) and Merlot, which dates back to 1964, is made into the legendary Campo del Lago label.
