Production area and history

Production area: area hinged on the Piave river which covers almost the entire plain of the province of Treviso and the eastern part of the province of Venice.
The DOCG "Piave Malanotte" or "Malanotte del Piave" takes its name from Borgo Malanotte, a medieval village located in Tezze di Piave (TV), the heart of the production of this wine. The production area begins where the Piave river opens into the Treviso plain and borders the Venice lagoon.
In this territory the presence of the cultivation of the vine dates back to 181 BC. with the construction of the Viaconsolare Postumia by the Romans. After the various barbarian invasions that led to the destruction of the vines, cultivation resumed vigorously under the dominion of the Republic of Venice. The vine expands throughout the area and the quality of the product improves markedly thanks to the willingness of the Venetian nobles to compete with each other to outdo themselves in the quality of their product.
In the 1950s, the producers of the area became aware of the peculiarities of the product and its potentiality and gathered in a consortium aimed at the protection and management of quality wines of the area. In 1971, "Malanotte" wine is known by consumers as Raboso Piave type Malanotteal within the denomination DOC Piave, and is considered one of the most valuable wines, whose bottles were appreciated for the first time in the early 80s.
The strong characterization of this wine, also made up of a part of dried grapes, has strongly met the tastes of consumers so as to become more famous than the denomination in which it was inserted as a type of wine. This led to the need for greater national and international protection of the name through the recognition of a proper geographical name. For these reasons, in 2010 the "Piave Malanotte" or "Malanotte del Piave" obtained the recognition of the geographical name controlled and guaranteed for the homonymous man from the Ministry.
A part of the grapes, from 15% to 30%, are dried before being pressed, and for at least thirty-six months this wine with an austere, savory and characteristic flavor will rest in the producers' cellars, partly in barrels (at least twelve months) and partly in bottle (at least four months), thus acquiring at the end an intense ruby ​​red color broken by violet reflections, tending to garnet with aging, and its typical aroma of spiced marasca cherry.
