The vines are planted in the Valpolicella Classica zone which is a hilly band north of Verona. The soil is composed of red-brown soil on detrital, limestone-marly and basaltic sediments. Handpicked at the beginning of harvest in small crates and left to raisin before rejoining grapes picked later in the harvest. Traditional skin fermentation followed by 10-15 days maceration.
