La Stoppa

La Stoppa and Devaolo
“The wines I have chosen to produce are the wines that history has delivered to me.”

-Elena Pantaleoni

La Stoppa is one of the iconic wine estates of Italy. It is an ancient estate that has been making great wines for a long, long time. Acquired by Elena Pantaleoni’s father in 1973, it is located in the western region of Emilia Romagna and covers 58 hectares of which approximately 30 are vineyards.  Now run entirely by Elena, she takes that history very seriously and stays true to tradition, but also embraces change and innovation and under her proprietorship the estate is returning to its local roots.

Since partnering with Guilio Armani of Denavolo in 1991 they decided that the climate was too hot to make the best of the originally planted varieties – Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon – and began replanting with indigenous varieties: Barbera, Bonarda, Malvasia di Candia, Ortruga and Trebbiano. The estate has been farmed organically since 1996.

In the cellar Elena and Guilio employ natural practices, using long skin macerations and never add sulphur during vinification. Stainless steel, cement and wooden tanks are used for fermentation and barrels for aging. La Stoppa employs extended ageing of the wines in old barrels then keeps them in bottle until they believe entered an optimal drinking window.
