100-150 metres above sea level. A hill of glacial origin with limestone, clay, gravelly and sandy soils.
Training system and plant density
Part of the vineyard is planted with old vines of noble indigenous varieties, using Veronese Pergola training and with very low yields of around 2 kg per vine. The remainder is planted with Guyot-trained Garganega vines, selected and propagated from historic clones.
Cortese and Incrocio Manzoni: mid- September. Garganega and Trebbianello: first ten days of October.
Cryomaceration and soft pressing. For the must , around 4%-5% of the Garganega grapes are fermented and mature “sur lie”, in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is then put into bottles where it remains to mature for at least 6 months before being released for sale.
