Crossing winds promote temperature changes between day and night while keeping the soil dry.
The soil, particularly generous in mineral salts, is highly variable in stratigraphy even for vineyards in the same locality.
For the production of Valpolicella Classico and Ripasso, Amarone and Recioto wines, Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes are vinified in the winery in truncated-cone steel and concrete tanks.
The vineyards are located in the center of Valpolicella Classica, between Verona and Lake Garda, at the foot of the Lessini Mountains.
