The futurist artist Fortunato Depero, born in Trento and living in Rovereto where in 1919 he inaugurated the Depero Futurist Art House, outlined in his works the artistic ferment that was breathed in Vallagarina during the last century. This artistic and cultural ferment imbued and gladdened Trentino society to the point of transversal growth in various areas: from Mart, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, to villages, valleys and vineyards. To complete the work of man, the geological eras that have drawn a very pure and rich in nature territory: here everything is really successful.

A wealth that we fully find in the historic Cantina Vivallis, 700 members and 900 hectares of vineyards in areas particularly prone to vines. Distant roots: in 1908  Don Giovanni Battista Panizza founded it, and the strength of tradition capable of ferrying a century of life along successful paths and a single creed: quality.

White Depero, whose label celebrates the work "Cover for Illustrated Magazine of the People of Italy", is a wine of vitality, candor and fullness. On the nose it conquers its mineral opening, the verticality of the lime, the dewy note of mint, the enveloping of yellow pulp peach. The taste does not change register confirming a delicious flavor. The palate sees a great harmony and a persistent finish built on the gustatory tension in the pleasant expressions of bitter almond and walnut husk.

Distinctive feature: its enjoyment. We paired it with a plate of spaghetti, sea urchins and clams. Also excellent with shellfish.

 

Company Profile

The brand Vivallis was born in 2004 from the centuries-old heritage of Società Agricoltori Vallagarina – Vallis Agri Scarl. “VI” as vinegrowers (viticoltori), vine (vite), wine (vino) and life (vita),  “VALLIS” to remark the strong connection with the Latin origins and with the well-established enological culture of the valley. The brand mirrors the historical and passionate link to the work in the vineyard and in the cellar as coherent expression of its territory. Today Vivallis conveys the strength of its roots (dating back to 1908) by harvesting and vinifying grapes from over 900 hectares of vineyards which are located in traditional areas and are wisely cultivated by over 700 farmers under the supervision of an expert team of agronomists and winemakers. The production goal is ambitious: bringing culture, history and passion for the past into our wines and offering more modern products through a controlled use of innovative technology in order to continue to be a true and dynamic expression of Vallagarina.
