The daily work of Marco and his family consists in researching and pursuing an optimal interaction between microclimate, exposure, cultivation system, yield per hectare and the choice of the right varieties in order to enhance all the characteristics of the different terroirs, which express the character and the uniqueness of the wine produced in their vineyards
The territory of Valpolicella is located north of Verona, bordered to the west by Lake Garda and to the east by the Lessini Mountains. This territory includes five municipalities: Fumane, Marano di Valpolicella, San Pietro in Cariano, Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella and Negrar. The mainly hilly landscape guarantees a better sun exposure of the vineyards. The geological and climatic characteristics of this territory are the basis of the great originality and typicality of its products. The typical vines grown in Valpolicella are: Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella.
This production area occupies the morainic Amphitheatre of Lake Garda, formed by the glaciers that shaped the Gardesano basin. This territory includes numerous municipalities, bordering the moraine strip to the south and climbing it northwards until it enters the Adige Valley. From there it follows the course of the river as far as Canale, a hamlet of Rivoli Veronese, and extends as far as Vezzane in the municipality of Caprino Veronese. It remains at the foot of Monte Baldo and descends towards the lake at Torri del Benaco and continues south.
The Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella vines are also grown in this area, as well as Pinot Grigio and Cabernet Sauvignon.
