The Roccolo Del Durlo vineyard is situated on one of the best volcanic terroirs in all of Soave Classico. The main characteristics of this vineyard are its steep slopes, held together by dry-stone wall terrasses made of basalt rocks, and its old vines, many of which are over a century old. In this idyllic environment, the Garganega grape conveys a kind of special emotion which cannot be found elsewhere.

We make a careful selection of the most mature grapes that are picked at the end of the season. Once de-stemmed, a cold skin-contact maceration takes place for about 48 hours. Fermentation is then carried out in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for about 25 days. The wine matures on the fine lees, with frequent batonnage for 8 months.
