Ampeleia was born only just in 2002 from the collaboration and friendship between noteworthy icons—Elisabetta Foradori, Thomas Widmann, and Giovanni Podini. They created a place where they could not only develop an agricultural project but also fulfill a common dream. The estate comprises different plots of land, each located far apart and on different altitude levels—their mission is to create variables in altitude, soil type and microclimatic conditions. Variety is the spice of life, at least Ampeleia, representing the project’s constant quality and willingness to discover. The grape varieties that have been planted are common to Mediterranean vineyards reflecting the tradition of growing multiple varieties in the same vineyard. Today, the estate extends over three altitude levels and covers 35 hectares of vineyard.
“Unlitro” is not just incredible wine, it also celebrates bringing drinkers together with “un litro” of wine over food and conversation. It's Ampeleia’s way to express the quality like their other wines, though the resulting blend is simply much more drinkable. The fruit comes from their youngest vines, a wine for immediate consumption.
