In the 1990s, Carla Prospero and her daughter Nadia Zenato acquired a large 18th century farm
in the Sirmione area called Sansonina. With this purchase they accepted a challenge to disprove
some preconceptions. They set about producing exceptional red wine in a zone traditionally known
for whites, while demonstrating that well-structured red wine isn’t necessarily men’s work.
With a typically feminine combination of determination and sensitivity,
Carla and Nadia have succeeded in producing hearty, powerful and elegant wines.
