The present era of this unique locus boasts luxuriantly-clad hillslopes cloaked by a generous nature, where we admire rich biodiversity, in the form of vineyards, woodland, olive groves, and cherry orchards. 

We cultivate our grapevines in this utterly unique context, with our vineyard parcels sub-divided by their location on one of the three mountains, which allows us to achieve a terroir synthesis: our Soave Vulcano.

The harmonious beauty of the present
The 3 volcanoes of Roncà

CALVARINA

The highest of ancient volcanoes and Italy’s highest hill as well, at 682 metres’ 

elevation. On a clear day, the summit of Calvarina offers a view of the entire Po river plain, right to the Venetian lagoon. This area, which includes Monte Crocetta, is Soave’s largest sub-zone. 

We start to find basalt rocks usually at one metre’s depth on this volcanic cone, under clay-loam or even silty surface strata. 

The Durella flourishes here, our native grape that yields the exuberant effervescence of Duello Vulcano and vibrant Classic Method Vulcano 36 Lessini Durello.

DUELLO

Monte Duello curves around as a magnificent horse-shoe, giving its vine-covered slopes, at elevations ranging from 50 to 200 metres, an enviable south-southwest exposure. The initial 30 centimetres of soil are clay, but from there down we find only solid basalt matrix, famous for its Eocene fossil beds.

The area enjoys constant ventilation from the Monte Lessini as well as significant day-night temperature differentials, both of which combine to favour late harvests. 

Since this mountain is part of a Soave sub-zone, it gifts us two of our white wines, Soave Duello and Soave Le Cervare, from un-grafted vines.

CROCETTA

This mountain features a very distinctive soil that gave its name to the nearby village, Terrossa, or red earth, since abundant iron oxide gives a particular reddish tinge to the basalt-clay soils.

The vineyards’ double exposure here allows taking full advantage of day-night temperature ranges and make wines.

The Merlot vines at the foot of Crocetta produce Le Cime Vulcano, while those farther up the slope yield Fidelis Rosso and Fidelis Bianco, two wines that are authentic fruits of our local legends—but we’ll have to tell you that story in person….
