Tamburino Sardo

The Azienda Agricola Tamburino Sardo, founded in 1968 by Adriano Fasoli, is now managed together with his two sons Stefano and Giuliano. It is located on the hills of Custoza, at the highest point, known as the Tamburino Sardo hill. The name derives from a page in the history of Italian Independence of 1848-1866 mentioned by De Amicis in his book “Cuore”. For 50 years, the Fasoli family has been producing quality and local wines, ranging from Custoza to Bardolino and thanks to a joint venture of love, Valpolicella Superiore, Ripasso and Amarone too. The founder of the company, Adriano has been working in the vineyard since he was a boy as it used to be. He passed on his passion, his seriousness and above all his technical skills in the vineyard and in the cellar to his children and is still at their side in the management of this big-hearted company. From the cellar on some sunny days you can enjoy a unique view that extends from Valpolicella to the Apennines. The vineyards are located around the production building, with a south-east and south-west orientation. The varieties that are grown are those typical of Custoza such as Trebbiano, Garganega, Tocai, Cortese, Riesling, together with Corvina and Rondinella for the production of Bardolino Doc and Bardolino Chiaretto Doc and some international grape varieties such as Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. For the wines of Valpolicella instead in Marano, Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara are planted. The forms of planting of the vine (spurred cordon and the classic Veronese pergola) all enjoy a particular exposure to the sun and the harvest is handled directly by the Fasoli family and is strictly by hand, with at least three selective passages according to the climate and maturation of grapes. The winery organizes tastings and guided tours with a combination of local products, upon reservation and has a sales point open from Monday to Saturday.
