The soil is lime-clay, moderately deep and alkaline, typical of the Veneto plain. It rests on an ancient layer, a paleosol known as “caranto”. The climate is generally temperate and humid due to its proximity to the sea, but a wide temperature range characterises it due to the alternate cold wind (Bora) and warm-humid one (Scirocco).
After destemming and pressing, the vinification is carried out in stainless steel tanks, with daily pumping over and maceration over skins for 5-6 days at a temperature of 25-28°C.
It is followed by malolactic fermentation and aged in cement tanks.
Intense red with red-purple reflections.
