Restaurant

Our "Osteria della Chiocciola"

In the romantic atmosphere of our “Osteria della Chiocciola” you can enjoy a traditional local menu, cooked with fresh products from our own garden, homemade fresh pasta, refined with our organic olive oil. After breakfast, you can sign up daily for the fine three or four course menu. Our dishes are accompanied by our own wines. Our white wine “Ferdinand”, the Spumante metodo Classico or the Dama in Rösa are perfect for an aperitif. For dinner, our famous barrique wine “Reservà da la Mastrala” or the traditional “Groppello DOC del Garda Classico” are ideal. To finish, we are happy to serve you our single-varietal Aquavite, distilled over a wood fire, or a fruity, homemade Limoncello. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Osteria La Chiocciola

Our restaurant is located in the frescoed vaulted rooms on the ground floor, which lead out over the portico into the green Lombard-style courtyard. In a warm atmosphere you can enjoy the local cuisine, cooked in an innovative way with fresh products from our garden and our fine aromatic herbs. Our dishes are rounded off with the best extra virgin olive oil pressed from our local olives.

External guests

We are also happy to cater for external guests in our Osteria La Chiocciola by appointment. We are pleased to offer you a fresh and local four-course dinner menu. We attach great importance to impeccable quality – even organic quality if available. For these reasons, we do not have a menu. The dinner time is 19:00 hrs.

Caffè Novecento

Right next to the reception to the boutique agriturismo l’Unicorno is the Caffè Novecento. Thanks to its distinctive “Liberty” atmosphere, guests can relive the extravagant era of the early 20th century. Here you can sip a glass of house wine or enjoy our strong and fragrant espresso from the antique “Elektra”, they truly reflect true Italian tradition. Why not treat yourself to a small glass of one of our house brandies which are distilled from the Groppello grape?

Buongiorno - l'Unicorno-Breakfast

After a restful night in our box-spring beds as well as the natural linens, a rich breakfast awaits you after the rooster’s morning greeting. From spring to autumn, our guests enjoy breakfast outside under the portico. With fresh organic fruits, homemade cakes and quiches, our own meat products to organic thé and fine coffee, you strengthen yourself with healthy products from nature. The curious swallows will tell you the latest stories of the day. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

The wine cellar

The cool 16th century cellar with its vaulted ceiling and stone walls still exudes the scents of fermenting must. This is where our Spumante is “turned” every day for two years according to the Metodo Classico. Here or under the portico you can taste our wines made with love and dedication. Our wines are made, among others, from the grapes of the Groppello vine, the most important grape variety in the Valtenesi area for Garda Classico. The grape owes its name to its narrow and compact shape, which resembles a “groppo”, which means “knot” in the Brescian dialect. With us you will also find the right wine from our own vineyard to accompany every fine dish.

Der Groppello ist ein mundiger Begleiter zu allen leichten Gerichten.

Passend zu:  Apéros, Pasta, Fleischspeisen, Wild, gut gelagerte Käsesorten.

Lagerung: Kühl und dunkel im Keller lagern, zwei bis sieben Jahren haltbar.

 
LA DAMA IN RÖSA - VINO ROSATO, DOP 2020/21

La „Dama in Rösa“ ist eine Hommage an unser schönes Val Müstair. Man spricht es im Rätoromanischen wie auch im Brescianer Dialekt gleich aus. La Dama in Rösa – aus  Groppello Gentile sowie Mocasina -Trauben hergestellter Roséwein. Nach der Weinernte werden die Trauben nur wenige Tage mit der ganzen Schale gelagert bis der Traubensaft die typische  Rosenblütenfarbe erhält. Langsam entwickelt sich ein volles Aroma, der feine Blumenduft sowie der fruchtige und frische Geschmack tragen dazu bei, dass dieser Rosé zu jeder Tageszeit gerne und gut gekühlt getrunken wird.

Trinktemperatur: max. 14 °

VALTÈNESI RESERVÄ DA LA MASTRALA, DOC 2016/18 - UNSER JUWEL

Dieser aussergewöhnliche Wein hat während 18 Monaten in Eichenfässern (Barrique) gelegen und ist zu einem wunderbaren Wein herangereift. Dieser Tropfen – vollausgereift und vollmundig hat der Hausherr seiner Frau Gabriella gewidmet. Sie war von 2006 – 2010 die erste Kreispräsidentin/Richterin (bis anhin war das Amt in fester Manneshand) in der Geschichte des Val Müstair.
Aus den Groppello Gentile und Mocasina Trauben sowie einer kleinen Menge der alten Traubensorte Rebo ist ein tief rubinroter und intensiver Wein entstanden. Die rubinfarbenen Reflexe können durch die Lagerung das intensive Aroma verstärken. Das nach reifen Früchten, nach lichtem Unterholz und nach Gewürzen duftendem Aroma ist komplex und gibt dem Weingeniesser den gewünschten runden Abgang. Ein ganz besonderer Wein für spezielle Anlässe! Bitte öffnen Sie den Wein rund 1-2 Stunden vor Genuss.

Trinktemperatur: 16 – 18 °

Passend zu: Hauptspeisen, Festessen, Fleischspeisen, Wild, gut gelagerte Käsesorten

Lagerung: Kühl und dunkel im Keller lagern, vier bis zehn Jahre haltbar.

BENACO BRESCIANO I.G.T.- VINO BIANCO – “FERDINAND” 2020

Unser Neuzugang „Ferdinand“, ergänzt unser Sortiment mit einem frischen Weisswein. Der aus Chardonnay und Incrocio Manzoni Trauben hergestellte Weisswein entspricht dem Wunsch, unser Angebot durch einen seltenen Weissen zu ergänzen. Manzoni Bianco ist nach seinem Schöpfer Luigi Manzoni benannt, der die Sorte mit einer Kreuzung von Riesling und Pinot Blanc zwischen 1930 und 1935 in Conegliano entwickelte. Zunächst wurde auch der Chardonnay als Kreuzungspartner vermutet, neue wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen schließen dies aber eindeutig aus. Wir wollten die fruchtige Frische des Chardonnay nutzen und somit haben wir mit beiden Traubensorten einen trinkfreudigen Weisswein kreiert. Unser „Ferdinand“ reift nach einer mittellangen Reifephase aus. Ein feiner Weisswein der am besten gut gekühlt genossen wird.

Trinktemperatur: max. 12-14 °

Passend zu: Spritziger Apéro-Wein, Vorspeisen, Salate, helle Fleisch- oder Fischgerichte, Pasta

Lagerung: Kühl und dunkel im Keller lagern, bis drei Jahre lagerfähig

L’UNICORNO - VINO SPUMANTE DI QUALITA – BRUT MILLESIMATO 2018

Unser zweiter Neuzugang „L‘Unicorno“, ergänzt unser Sortiment mit einem einzigartigen „Vino Spumante Metodo Classico champenoise“. Der aus Groppello Trauben hergestellte Spumante entspricht dem Wunsch, unseren eigenen „Schaumwein“ geniessen zu können. Seit rund zwei Jahren „drehen“ wir die Flaschen täglich in unserem Weinkeller und sprechen dem Spumante liebevoll zu. Das Ergebnis befindet sich nun trinkbereit in den Flaschen. Mit Freude servieren wir den „L’Unicorno“ gerne schön gekühlt zwischen einer Poolpause, zum Apero, zum Dessert oder auch während des ganzen Abendessens. Eigentlich passt er hervorragend zu jeder Tageszeit. Unser „l’Unicorno“ bedeutet ein fruchtiges, frisches, prickelndes aber auch sehr elegantes Trinkerlebnis!

Trinktemperatur: max. 6-9 °

Passend zu: eigentlich zu allen Speisen, vor allem helle Fleischgerichte, Fisch, Pasta, Apéro und Dessert zugleich

Lagerung: Kühl und dunkel im Keller lagern, bis drei Jahre lagerfähig

Wir wünschen Ihnen viel Freude und Erfolg beim Genuss unserer eigenen Weine mit einem herzlichen "E V I V A"!

Our wine assortment

GROPPELLO GARDA CLASSICO 1654, DOC., 2020

The Groppello di Macesina is made from the local, autochthonous grape varieties Groppello Gentile as well as Mocasina. The deep red, intense colour is reminiscent of garnet stone.

Drinking temperature: 16 – 18°.

Matching: Apéritifs, pasta, meat dishes, game, well-aged cheeses.

Storage: Store in a cool and dark place in the cellar, keeps for two to seven years.

 

LA DAMA IN RÖSA - VINO ROSATO, DOP 2020/21

La “Dama in Rösa” is a homage to our beautiful Val Müstair. It is pronounced the same way in Rhaeto-Romanic and in the Brescian dialect. La Dama in Rösa – rosé wine made from Groppello Gentile and Mocasina grapes. After the grapes are harvested, they are stored with the whole skins for only a few days until the grape juice takes on the typical rose petal colour. Slowly a full aroma develops, the fine floral scent as well as the fruity and fresh taste contribute to the fact that this rosé is drunk with pleasure and well chilled at any time of the day.

Drinking temperature: max. 14 °

Matching: Sparkling aperitif wine, starters, salads, meat or fish dishes, pasta

Storage: Store in a cool and dark place in the cellar, can be stored for up to four years.

 

VALTÈNESI RESERVÄ DA LA MASTRALA, DOC 2016/18 - UNSER JUWEL

This exceptional wine has spent 18 months in oak barrels (barrique) and has matured into a wonderful wine. This wine – fully matured and full-bodied – was dedicated by the owner to his wife Gabriella. She was the first female district president/judge in the history of the Val Müstair from 2006 to 2010 (until then the office was held by a man).
From the Groppello Gentile and Mocasina grapes as well as a small amount of the old grape variety Rebo, a deep ruby-red and intense wine has been created. The ruby reflections can be enhanced by ageing the intense aroma. The aroma of ripe fruit, light undergrowth and spices is complex and gives the wine connoisseur the desired round finish. A very special wine for special occasions! Please open the wine about 1-2 hours before drinking.

Drinking temperature: 16 – 18 °.

Matching: Main courses, feasts, meat dishes, game, well-aged cheeses

Storage: Store in a cool, dark place in the cellar. Keeps for four to ten years.

BENACO BRESCIANO I.G.T.- VINO BIANCO – “FERDINAND” 2020

Our new arrival “Ferdinand”, complements our range with a fresh white wine. Made from Chardonnay and Incrocio Manzoni grapes, this white wine responds to the desire to complement our range with a rare white. Manzoni Bianco is named after its creator Luigi Manzoni, who developed the variety by crossing Riesling and Pinot Blanc between 1930 and 1935 in Conegliano. At first, Chardonnay was also suspected as a crossing partner, but new scientific research clearly rules this out. We wanted to use the fruity freshness of the Chardonnay and thus we created an easy-drinking white wine with both grape varieties. Our “Ferdinand” matures after a medium-long ripening phase. A fine white wine that is best enjoyed well chilled.

Drinking temperature: max. 12-14 °

Goes well with: Sparkling aperitif wine, starters, salads, light meat or fish dishes, pasta

Storage: Store in a cool and dark place in the cellar, can be stored for up to three years.

L’UNICORNO - VINO SPUMANTE DI QUALITA – BRUT MILLESIMATO 2018

Our second new addition, “L’Unicorno”, completes our range with a unique “Vino Spumante Metodo Classico champenoise”. Made from Groppello grapes, the Spumante responds to the desire to be able to enjoy our own “sparkling wine”. For about two years now, we have been “turning” the bottles daily in our wine cellar and lovingly tasting the Spumante. The result is now ready to drink in the bottles. We enjoy serving “L’Unicorno” nicely chilled between a pool break, with an aperitif, with dessert or even throughout dinner. In fact, it goes perfectly at any time of day. Our “l’Unicorno” means a fruity, fresh, sparkling but also very elegant drinking experience!

Drinking temperature: max. 6-9 °

Goes well with: Actually with all dishes, especially light meat dishes, fish, pasta, aperitifs and desserts at the same time.

Storage: Store in a cool and dark place in the cellar, can be stored for up to three years.

We wish you much pleasure and success in enjoying our own wines with a hearty "E V I V A"!
