Terroir

The vineyards are situated in the area surrounding Magrè, at the foot of a gentle slope and at an altitude of between 220 and 350 metres with a southern/south-eastern exposure. The white chalky gravel soils contain well-ventilated humus.

Climate

The warm Mediterranean climate is characterised by very hot summers and mild winters, as well as the Ora, an afternoon wind that comes from Lake Garda to the south.

Vinification

The grapes are initially harvested by hand in small crates, and then dried for five months in the drying lofts on the Baron Salvadori estate. Once the grapes are more concentrated, they are then gently pressed and fermented in small oak barrels. The young wine is then aged on the fine lees for 12 months and in the bottle for a further year.
