is worth mentioning that it was created by Count Loredan
Gasparini for the official events of the city of Venice
and dedicated to former President of the French Republic
Charles De Gaulle. The label portraying a youth was created
in 1967 by the artist Tono Zancanaro to express his admiration
for the wine.
The Capo di Stato is the pride of the Azienda Agricola
Conte Loredan Gasparini in the province of Treviso.
The 80-hectar vineyard lies in Venegazzù di
Volpago del Montello, at the foot of the hills bearing
the same name, at the heart of the Marca Trevigiana.
area has a clayey soil very rich in iron and mineral
components. The farm was founded in the 1950's by
Count Piero Loredan, a direct heir of the Doge of
Venice Leonardo Loredan (who chose the territory of
"Vignigazzu" to take up residence in a gorgeous
Palladian Villa). In 1973 the farm became property
of its present owner and director Mr Giancarlo Palla.
Since the beginning the founder decided to grow Cabernet
Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec in the
farm to produce high quality wines. His philosophy
was (and still is at the basis of the company's activity)
the respect for and the enhancement of the tie between
the vine variety and territory.
