The Innkeeper’s cellar
The Innkeeper’s cellar Count Marchetti already knew that the cave created by Monte Brione, here at La Cantinota, was the right place to store, mix and taste wine. In fact, the first attempts at Vino Santo were made here, and some of the first Trentino sparkling wines vinified with the traditional French method were uncorked in the same place.
La Cantinota was born to enhance and exalt the wine production of the area, and this mission is still very much alive today: the burden and honor of the innkeeper is visiting the local cellars and selecting the labels to be included in our expansive wine list.
In doing so, those who sit at our tables have the certainty of being able to taste the best of what Garda and Trentino have to offer, and having the innkeeper explain the characteristics and peculiarities of each bottle, with the passion of those who draw these narratives directly from the producers.
Our selection of local and Trentino wines
Consistent with the type of cuisine prepared by our chefs, local wineries dominate our wine list. For example, you’ll find the Simoncelli winery, offering great value for money year after year - one of their best wines is Navesel, a balanced Bordeaux blend that amazes with its aromas of currant and raspberry.
The Toblino and Poli wineries are representative of the territory around us, with wines from Valle dei Laghi. Other examples are the Mori winery, or again, the Endrizzi winery, from the border area of San Michele all’Adige.
Furthermore, our cellar has plenty of bottles for true connoisseurs, including the best San Leonardo vintages. Naturally, here in the historic Cantinota cellar, a rich selection of Vino Santo could not be missing, with recent bottles as well as older vintages, starting from the early 1990s.
National wines and attention to organic and biodynamic wines
The excellence of Trentino wines certainly could not make us overlook the oenological treasure of the entire Peninsula. For this reason, all Italian regions are well represented in our wine list.
For example, we travel close to home with South Tyrolean whites and the best labels from Veneto, and then move on to Chianti, Brunello, Amarone and so on, offering a complete and always satisfying choice for all tastes and preferences.
Lastly, particular attention was paid to including a good number of organic and biodynamic wines in our selection, productions that in recent years have gone from being encouraging future prospects, to representing an ongoing and already fully established revolution.
