This wine takes its name from takes his name from Prince Amedeo of Savoia who fought in 1866 in the Third Italian War of Independence near the Cavalchina estate and is remembered on a memorial stone at the entrance of our winery. 

The different ripening time and characteristics of the four grapes has suggested over the years various wine making techniques, leading us to the one that has allowed us to achieve an elegant and complex white. 
Fernanda grapes, harvested in small trays and put in a refrigerated room unit they reach – 10/12, are frozen before pressing to maintain their aromas: The temperature is then put back to 0° and the grapes are pressed with their stalks; the epithelium cells get broken due to the freezing of the skin with a consequent releasing of the typical notes of this variety. Garganega grapes have a more elegant, but pronounced, personality which is perfectly expressed through a vinification with a light reduction which develops its typical mineral scents.  For the Trebbiano and Trebbianello grapes instead we do a more traditional vinification to maintain their structure which supports the olfactic traits of Fernanda and Garganega. After a static clarification, the musts are fermented at about 16/17° for about two weeks.  Fine lees must be accurately moved and cared of; malolactic fermentation is prevented. The blending is done at the end of May, and after few months of bottle ageing the wine is released in September. Amedeo is rich, ample, deep and well expressed wine with an extremely long palate which is enhanced over years. It does not shy away from well flavoured food.
