Grape varietyPinot grigio 100%
The DOC Venezia “Terroir” starts from the pre-alps, at the foothills of the Dolomite mountain chain, a plain characterised by wide rivers, waters which surge from underground springs of Dolomite origin and various types of terrain. The area involved is the fruit of long period glacier formation and successive alluvial deposits.
The multiple soil types can be divided into two macro-areas separated by a strip of springs: the zone of the upper plain and that of the lower plain.
The upper plain has, on the whole, gravelly soils, well drained, which force the roots of the vines to sink into the deepest strata of the soil. Special and complementary climatic conditions characterise these soils: the temperature swings from daytime warmth to evening and nighttime coolness, together with a constant breeziness, concentrate the aromatic elements of the grapes. These are excellent conditions for the production of fresh, elegant and aromatic white wines with important notes of flowers and fresh fruit.
The lower plain is made of smaller-grained material, principally clay and loams. These soils create not only structured reds with significant notes of red. fruits, but also aromatic white wines, solid and suited for ageing.
