The Tamburino Sardo Wine Estate- Winery Located in the hills of Custoza producing Distinct Local Wines
The Tamburino Sardo wine estate was set up by Adriano Fasoli in 1968 and is now managed by his sons, Giuliano and Stefano, in the hills of Custoza. The name of the cellar comes from the national Risorgimento history linked with the battles of 1848 and 1866, mentioned by De AMicis in his book, Cuore. For more than 50 years, the family has been making distinct local wines ranging from Bardolino to Custoza, including the Ripasso, Amarone, and Valpolicella Superiore. Adriano, the founder, has been working in the vineyards since a very young age. He has successfully passed on his winemaking skills and knowledge to his sons, who are continuing the family legacy.
