This historic Valpolicella vineyard, famous for its extraordinary geographical position, mild climate and premium quality grapes, is located in the town of Sant’Ambrogio and covers an area of about 30 hectares (74 acres).

The vine-training system introduced in 1979 – using the then revolutionary Guyot system – and the increased plant density of approximately 4200 vines per hectare (1699 vines/acre), was designed to enhance the potential of Corvina, Valpolicella’s most common varietal. In successive planting in 1998, density was increased to 6500 vines per hectare (2630 vines/acre). Apart from Corvina, Syrah is also cultivated. The innovations introduced from a viticultural point of view, together with a unique and favourable micro-climate ensure the production of prime quality grapes. The microclimate results from a combination of factors that are practically impossible to achieve in other parts of Valpolicella: terrain with scarce topsoil, poor in organic matter and rich in limestone, potassium and calcium, and with low concentrations of magnesium and iron; constant air currents; excellent exposure to the sun’s rays due to its south-east facing position and its location at the top of a hill, at an altitude of some 300 m (984 ft) a.s.l.
