In the vineyards of Le Chiusure winery six varieties of red grapes are grown: Groppello, Barbera, Sangiovese, Marzemino, Rebo and Merlot.

Our four wines are all the product of a different combination of these grapes.
Three of them – two reds and one rosè – carry the name of the denomination of controlled origin Valtènesi, and are therefore territorial wines in which the native Groppello grape is prevalent.

The Groppello grape makes up 50% of Chiaretto, a pale pink, elegant and delicate wine.

Valtènesi and Valtènesi Campei are two diverse interpretations of the red wine of the territory:
the former (70% Groppello) is fresh and fruity and it is bottled one year after harvesting;
the latter (50% Groppello) is more concentrated and complex; it matures in wooden barrels and is generally ready a year later, with a good potential for ageing.
Both wines also contain Barbera and Sangiovese grapes; Campei also contains a modest percentage of Rebo grapes.
The fourth wine – Malborghetto –  on the other hand is a blend of Rebo and Merlot which deservedly follows in the wake of great Italian wines which can be aged.

     
 
     

Finally at Le Chiusure we tend about 500 olive trees of the varieties Casaliva, Leccino and Pendolino, from which we obtain extra-virgin olive oil, the pure essence of the tree which is the symbol of the Garda landscape.
The olives are picked early and milled in our presence at the cooperative oil mill of which we are members.
The oil made from our olives is filtered before returning to our farm where it is bottled.
