Soil content

The soil composition and its geological structure is one of the most important factors affecting the quality of the grapes and the wine. Our vineyards are situated within the “DOC MONTELLO E COLLI ASOLANI” area, on the steepest hillsides between Asolo and Possagno area (see the map).
The subsoil of Asolo hills is mainly crossed by calcareous marls, made up of sedimentary rocks which have settled over the centuries and prevalently made up of layers of chalky clay with variable sand and thin skeletons called “sandstone”.
The MONTELLO hills, on the other hand, extend from Cornuda, through Montebelluna, up to Nervesa della Battaglia (see map) and feature a soil surface with a characteristic red colour. They rise in isolation in the foothills of the Dolomites, in the province of Treviso, shaped like a whales back. “Red Soil” is how its reddish clay ground is known . The red earth is what remains after the rock's decalcification. The colour is aby-product of the ferreous conglomerates formerly contained in the subsoil of this area.
