In the 1960s, Giuseppe Inama, the founder of this renowned wine estate, started buying small plots of vineyards in the heart of 'Soave Classico'. The area was originally planted with the ancient "Graecanicum" (originating from Greece) variety. This name was subsequently converted to "Garganega" in the local dialect. His idea was to gather only top quality vineyards of old vine Garganega, and turn them into a wine capable of restoring Soave's reputation. Today Inama counts as a reference for both white and red wines in Soave.

Colli Berici Più' means 'more' in Italian and there's more' than just Carmenere in this quintessential blend from the Colli Berici, a line of gently rolling volcanic hills in northeastern Italy. The iron-rich clay soil on a limestone base is perfect for Bordeaux varieties and Carmenere. This is also the reason that it is an IGT Veneto Rosso because due to the Merlot addition it no longer meets the regulations of the DOC Colli Berici

This Inama Piu is a blend of Carmenère 85% and Merlot 15% coming from a south-facing vineyard located Lonigo and San Germano dei Berici (VI) at an altitude of 50-250 m above sea level
The grapes are picked by hand and then destemmed. After 12 days of maceration in upright stainless steel fermentors, the wine ages for 12 months in 2nd year 225l French oak barriques.

In the glass, the Carmenere Più is a vibrant ruby red with a purple rim in the glass. The wine has a pronounced nose with black cherry, soy, cocoa, violets and some lava stone. In the mouth, the wine is elegant with fresh acidity, firm, integrated tannins and a very good length. A perfect wine with salami (sopressa, sopressa with garlic) and Val Liona DOP ham and grilled pork.
