Ageing/Vinification: The young Valpolicella made in October, undergoes a secondary fermentation on the still flavoured Amarone skins after its fermentation for 10 to 20 days. Regular pump over and fermentation temperature that never exceed 20°C are essentials.The wine ages in 3,5 and 5hl french oak for at least 2 years before bottling. It rests at least 6 months in bottle before the sale. The total winemaking takes 3-4 years.

Vineyard: 12h single estate vineyard in Monte La Parte, located at an altitude from 300 to 350 m above sea level, located all over the top of the hill enjoying a full sun exposure. The roots lie in a calcareous and tuffaceous soil, poor of organic material A meager soil, difficult to work in which can grow superb grapes. The high minerality in the soil gives to the wine an excellent balance and complexity.
