The stretch of Valdadige (the Valley of the River Adige) which lies in southern Trentino is called Vallagarina. Here, the vineyards border the river at the foot of Monte Baldo and the Lessinia Mountains. The land is fertile and marked by the presence of towering mountains, as well as by the vigorous course of the Adige River, which splits through the middle of the vineyards and at the same time caresses the fields. This our native land, where grapes are still grown using the Pergola Trentina vine training system, terraces down from the mountains to the river, and the composition of the soil varies from morainic to alluvial. The microclimate is influenced by the proximity of Lake Garda and defined by important day-and-night shifts in temperature. Consequently, discovering the right exposure to the sun is the secret to making our wines healthy and delicious.
The vineyards in Crosano, on Monte Baldo, are rooted in black basalt, i.e. ground with a rocky surface! The grapevines grow on narrow, steep terraces at an altitude typical of chestnut and fir trees. The brightness in the mountain air makes the landscape seem to sparkle, stimulating the vegetation to the point of amplifying photosynthesis.
