A love for their own corner of earth was the inspiration, for the third generation of the Dal Ceros, for their Valpolicella project.
This is a winegrowing area with very distinctive features, both geographic as well as geologic, and it provides a natural terrace with a panoramic view over the city of Verona.
The earth here is a rather complex amalgam of volcanic, calcareous, and composite soils, which in the higher areas are present in different concentrations and with abundant mineral content.
The constant breezes ensure a significant level of dryness in the soils, and the overall climate is mild, due nearby Lake Garda.
Corvina, corvinone, rondinella, and molinara
The southern exposure ensures a pronounced luminosity and solar radiation throughout the year. Wide day-night temperature differentials and constant breezes positively impact terroir characteristics in the wines.
The main training system is the Verona pergola, with newer plantings trained to Guyot.
The state-of-the-art, superbly-equipped facility was expressly designed for the appassimento process, and the production and ageing of the noble red wines of Valpolicella.
