Having been able to possess three different vineyards in three separate terroir, the cellar Maso Cantanghel enjoys the diversity in the climate and soil composition. Such distinctiveness has also added unique qualities to the wines of this cellar, as these have been crafted using yields of different vineyards.
The cellar Maso Cantanghel is ensconced within the surrounding hills of about 460 meters of height in Trento. Such a location enables this homely cellar to enjoy the most favorable microclimate that is necessary to produce superior-quality wines through excellent sun exposure and topography.
The cellar was originally built as an Austrian fort (1868-1876) of captivating beauty and of significant historical interest on the Valsugana road that was once considered to be the only decent point of entry into the city of Trento before 1900. In later years, the fort was modernized for the purpose of producing wines of exalting quality.
Keeping in mind the historical significance of this place and the optimum position of the cellar, winemakers Lorenzo Simoni and his son Federico took over the control of the estate in order to create organic white wines of peerless stature from Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon, the grapes of equally unparallel quality.
The founders of this cellar have always paid utmost attention towards acquiring a salubrious yield and maintaining the safety of the surrounding terrain by following the organic method of cultivation devoid of any chemical pesticides.
While taking the guided tour of the cellar you will be able to enjoy the breathtaking view of the nature and witness the cultivation that brings forth this magnificent collection of wines.
